We’re opening up the FDL Book Salon discussion group tomorrow at 5pm EST/2pm PST and we’ll be talking about Crashing the Gate.  The discussion will continue next week, same bat time, same bat channel, with the book’s authors Jerome Armstrong and Markos Moulitsas.
 
But it just gets better.  The following week, on May 14, we’ll be starting a discussion of Before The Storm: Barry Goldwater and the Unmaking of the American Consensus by the fabulous Rick Perlstein, who will also be joining us on May 21 to discuss the book.  Glenn Greenwald’s book How Would a Patriot Act? Defending American Values from a President Run Amok will begin shipping on May 15, so we’ll start our discussion of that on May 28 and Glenn will join us on June 4 to discuss his work.  We’ll be keeping our schedule updated in the sidebar to the left.
 
I think I am showing my true nerd colors here by saying that this is my idea of thrilling.
