On Tuesday, February 2, 2010 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., the Objectivist Party of New York held a Read-In to celebrate Ayn Rand's Birthday at Panera Bread located at 160 Walt Whitman Road in Huntington Station, New York.
OPNY members brought the following books written by Ayn Rand to the Read-In: Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead, Anthem and We The Living. Each person read their book for 15 minutes identifying an interesting quotation or situation. Then each person shared their thoughts on that text during a 30 minute discussion period. This format was then repeated a second time.
Dr. Tom Stevens, OPNY President, hosted the event.
