May Meeting: A Story about a Rebel
Our speaker for the May meeting will be Dan Allosso. Dan is a freethought history writer who has recently come out with the book An Infidel Body-Snatcher and the Fruits of His Philosophy. This book is the story of a freethinker. Charles Knowlton. Charles was an outsider for most of his life, swimming against the stream of religious and social conformity. This is a true story about why outsiders are important, and what they can achieve. It’s also an adventure story, full of conflict, drama, humor, and a little horror.
Dan took a break from writing his dissertation for a Ph.D. in History, because he thought the story of Charles Knowlton was important. His previous book, the award-winning novel Outside the Box, convinced Dan that in order to raise a new generation of creative critical thinkers, we need to tell them stories about rebels. At our upcoming meeting, Dan will share his story, and Charles’, with us.
