“The Project”

“The Project” that you’ve heard me refer to on my show has finally been announced by The Ayn Rand Institute! I am helping cartoonist Bosch Fawstin condense and adapt Atlas Shrugged into a script, which he will use in the creation of a graphic novel version of Rand’s work. Both exciting and daunting. The publisher is happy with what we’ve submitted so far; I’ll keep you posted as I learn more details.
