In his memoir, Faitheist, Chris Stedman (Assistant Humanist Chaplain at Harvard) describes his journey from evangelical Christian to atheist and interfaith activist. In her new book Being Both: Embracing Two Religions in One Interfaith Family, Susan Katz Miller describes her journey from interfaith child raised with Judaism, to parent raising children in an intentional interfaith families community. (Her controversial Op-Ed on interfaith families just caused a ruckus in the New York Times.)
Chris and Susan (both Beacon Press authors) will lead a discussion on the importance of community and interfaith activism for both secular humanists and interfaith families, and the overlap and synergy between these two communities. They will also consider the particular challenges of interfaith dialogue - and interfaith families - for atheists, agnostics, and the nonreligious.
Both books will be on sale, and the authors available for signing, with a portion of the proceeds going to the 4th Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Meal Packing Project
