In Memoriam - Christopher Hitchens

By Michelle S. Mon, December 19, 2011

Last Friday, the literary world lost one of its most impassioned and opinionated contributors to the public discourse on religion and intellectualism--Christopher Hitchens. A self-styled radicalist, Hitchens was notorious for his strong opinions and conflicting views. His polemic against organized religion, God Is Not Great, was a no. 1 New York Times bestseller and a finalist for the National Book Award. Hitchens visited the Free Library's Author Events Series twice--in 2007 and in 2010. Listen to the podcasts from his visits here and here.
