Celebrate the publication of Choice: The Best of Reason by spending

An Evening with Reason Magazine
Greenwich Village Barnes & Noble
396 Ave of the Americas at 8th Street

Featuring Nick Gillespie, editor-in-chief of Reason and editor of Choice; Brian Doherty, senior editor of Reason and author of This Is Burning Man; and Joe Bob Briggs, contributor to Choice and author of Profoundly Disturbing: Shocking Movies That Changed History!

Moderated by Joe Garden, staff writer for The Onion and coauthor Citizen You: Helping Your Government Help Itself.

If you haven't bought a copy of Choice: The Best of Reason yet, what are you waiting for? $19.95 will net you a year's worth of the magazine and a softcover copy of the collection that's been called "a must read for all rational thinkers who seek an honest take on the issues of our time" by Court TV's Catherine Crier.

And if you've bought only one copy so far, remember the holidays are coming and the book makes a great gift idea–especially for the hard-core conservatives and ultra-lefties in your life, both of whom will be bothered unto distraction by Reason's uniquely libertarian take on politics, culture, and idea. Go here for more details on how to buy Choice and how to subscribe to Reason.
