Welcome to the H.L. Mencken Club Web Site.

We are pleased to announce that we have completed the agenda for the 2014 H.L. Mencken Club Conference, to be held on October 31 through November 2, 2014 in Baltimore.

As always, the discussion will be lively, and will reflect a variety of perspectives from the "non-aligned" right. A recurring feature of our conference is intellectual diversity - the kind of diversity that causes PC apparatchiks and movement conservatives to break out in hives. This year's conference will be no different.

The overarching theme of the conference is "The Left", a theme which presents a target rich environment for our speakers. Highlights include:

  • A Friday Night address from Sean Gabb of the Libertarian Alliance
  • Saturday panels exploring the leftist approach to a variety of subjects, including Human Nature, the State, and Education
  • A lively Saturday Evening debate on the subject of immigration.

Registration for the conference will be opening soon.

If you are interested in keeping up with the Mencken Club online, consider liking our Facebook page, or following us on Twitter. We are also maintaining a blog on this site, to which you are encouraged to subscribe.
