  • Brian Kahn at Country Bookshelf in Bozeman, MT

    Brian Kahn at Country Bookshelf in Bozeman, MT

    April 27, 2011

    April 27, 2011, 7:00pm, Brian Kahn will be at Country Bookshelf speaking about his book Real Common Sense: Using our Founding Values to Reclaim Our Nation and Stop the Radical Right from Hijacking America. America’s extreme Right falsely claims the Founding Fathers as allies for their radical agenda. Pundit Glenn Beck has gone so far as to use the title of Tom Paine’s famous 1776 pamphlet Common Sense for his own book—a book that attacks the political, social and economic rights which Paine and the Founders fought for! Kahn claims it’s time to cut through the rhetoric, smoke, and spin, and get back to our core American values. Location: 28 West Main Bozeman, Montana 59715.
