Come join the fun at Reason Weekend May 16-19, 2024, our annual long weekend for members of Reason’s exclusive Torchbearer Society. You’ll spend time with great speakers, engage in spirited conversation, and enjoy amazing food at one of Boston’s most exquisite hotels, the Four Seasons. It will be a weekend to remember!

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Charles Mann, author of 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus
  • Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, Stanford University
  • Todd Rose, founder of Populace and author of Collective Illusions
  • Rick Doblin, founder and president of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS)
  • Corey DeAngelis, Senior Fellow, American Federation for Children
  • A live taping of the Reason Roundtable with Katherine Mangu-Ward, Matt Welch, Nick Gillespie, and Peter Suderman
  • Reason President David Nott, Founder Bob Poole, and other Reason experts

The weekend will kick-off with dinner on Thursday, May 16 and end with breakfast on Sunday, May 19. Panels and speakers will run on Friday and Saturday from 8:30 to noon, and we’ll have speakers during lunch and dinner on both days. On Friday afternoon, you can explore Boston on your own, relax at the hotel, or hang-out with friends, new and old. On Saturday afternoon, we’ll have an optional city excursion.
