The next meeting of the 12th District Republicans will be on Thursday, March 8, 2012 at 7:00pm. It will be held at the National Coney Island located at 30140 Van Dyke between Twelve and Thirteen Mile. Come early and have dinner; feel free to bring a guest.
Our guest speakers will be State Representative Jeff Farrington and Tom Grace, author of “The Liberty Intrigue” in which the character of a likable conservative protagonist was too great a leap of imagination for some freelance editors. His presentation is a mix of humorous and insightful anecdotes.
Tom Grace has been added to the already star-studded line-up for this week’s Americans for Prosperity – Michigan Forum!
Follow the link to book your seat at the VIP event on Friday night, 2-24, and for the forum on Saturday, 2-25.
Tom will join Herman Cain, Michelle Malkin, Andrew Brietbart, Anne McElhinney, Frank Beckmann, Hillsdale College professor Gary Wolfram, CEI labor policy director Vinnie Vernuccio, Terry Bowman and Rose Bogaert, and much more.
The Liberty Intrigue has clever and often exciting twists and turns, but the book’s real value lies in Grace’s ability to articulate clearly and elegantly core conservative principles, and to stress how these principles stand in direct opposition to the damaginggovernance the Progressives are visiting on the United States today, not in a novel, but in real life and in real time.
