Atlanta – Are you joining us? Friday is the deadline to register for the Georgia Public Policy Foundation’s October 16 Policy Briefing Luncheon and Book Forum. We’re marking the 87th birthday of Margaret Thatcher (October 13), Britain’s only female Prime Minister, who served three consecutive terms (1979-1990) and is one of the dominant political figures of 20th-century Britain.
The keynote speaker is Thatcher advisor John Blundell, her decades-long friend and author of, “Margaret Thatcher: A Portrait of The Iron Lady.” The event, which begins at noon at the Georgian Club in Cobb County, will cost $60 to attend and includes a copy of the book.
“John Blundell has been one of the most effective champions of the free enterprise economic model which has delivered progress and prosperity around the world. Therefore he is very well placed to explain to Americans the beliefs and principles which underpinned what became known as ‘Thatcherism.'” – Lady Thatcher
Seating is limited. To register, go to http://weblink.donorperfect.com/GPPFPolicyBriefingandBookForum.
Blundell, a Visiting Fellow at The Heritage Foundation, was Director General of London’s Institute of Economic Affairs (1993-2009), described by the BBC’s Andrew Marr as “undoubtedly the most influential think tank in modern British history.” He has known Margaret Thatcher since 1970 and has met her in every post she has had since then (and many times since she resigned from public office).
Blundell’s latest book is, “Ladies for Liberty: Women Who Made A Difference In American History,” described as “a guidebook for lovers of liberty.” Find out more about him at http://www.georgiapolicy.org/?p=6736.
