Ayn Rand’s Novels for Colorado Teachers

I am independently promoting funding for the Ayn Rand Institute’s “Books for Teachers” program for Colorado.

    Is the Galt’s Gulch auction for land in Ouray or for the privilege of having a certificate placed on a wall?

    Mike, It’s the latter! Essentially you get “bragging rights” for funding Galt’s Gulch in the “Books for Teachers” campaign. You don’t actually reserve a spot in Galt’s Gulch; sorry! -Ari
