Charles MurrayTonight our monthly Junto meeting will hear Charles Murray, a foremost expert on human intelligence, expanding on his essay on "Jewish Genius" from the April 2007 Commentary magazine. Charles Murray first came to national attention in 1984 with the publication of Losing Ground: American Social Policy 1950–1980. This was followed in 1988 by In Pursuit: Of Happiness and Good Government, in 1994 by The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life (with Richard J. Herrnstein), in 1997 by What It Means to be a Libertarian: A Personal Interpretation , and in 2003 by Human Accomplishment: The Pursuit of Excellence in the Arts and Sciences, 800 B.C. to 1950. His latest book is In Our Hands: A Plan to Replace the Welfare State (2006).

He's a fine speaker who always knows his subject thoroughly. I hope Daily Spec readers will come and hear Murray, and say hello to us. There's no admission charge, and please bring your friends. We meet at the General Society Library, 20 West 44th St., in Manhattan. We have a general discussion period starting around 7:30 pm, then the speaker comes on at about 8 pm, and after he presents his case there will be plenty of time to question him.
