September 16: A Date with the Authors
Minnesota Atheists’ monthly meetings will begin again starting on Sunday, September 16. The much anticipated book, Atheist Voices of Minnesota (published by Freethought House), was just officially released late last month! To celebrate this very special occasion, 16 of the 36 contributors will briefly present their own personal stories by reading excerpts of their writings from the book.
Here is a list of the 16 presenting authors in alphabetical order: Norman Barrett Wiik, Beth Becker, Ryan Benson, August Berkshire, Jill Carlson, Justin Chase, Kori Hennessy, Michelle Huber, Eric Jayne, PZ Myers, Robin Raianiemi, Elizabeth Stiras, Todd Torkelson, James Zimmerman, and Stephanie Zvan.
The bulk of the time will be dedicated to authors reading portions of their essays. Other contributors, though not reading, will be present to talk about their pieces after the meeting and to sign copies. Atheist Voices of Minnesota will be available for purchase. All proceeds benefit Minnesota Atheists, with the majority of the funds going to support the radio fund.
Afterward, we will venture to Q. Cumbers Restaurant for dinner.
Please join us on Sunday, September 16th to support our meetings and Atheist Voices!
