Over the next two weeks, I will be doing talks about my book Democracy and Political Ignorance: Why Smaller Government is Smarter, at Stanford Law School, and at the Austin, Texas lawyers division chapter of the Federalist Society. Both talks are open to the public. However, non-Federalist Society members would have to pay a slightly higher price for lunch at the talk in Austin ($29 for non-members, and $20 for members).

Stanford: April 24, 12:45-2 PM – Stanford Law School, Rm. 185 (sponsored by the Stanford Federalist Society). Some additional details are available here.

Austin: April 30, 11:30-1 PM (my talk will start at noon) – Sullivan’s Steakhouse at 300 Colorado Street, Austin, TX (sponsored by the Austin, TX Lawyers Division Chapter of the Federalist Society).

UPDATE: In the original version of this post, I incorrectly stated that the Austin event may only be open to Federalist Society members. I have now corrected that mistake, and apologize for any confusion.
