The SHSNY Book Club is meeting Thursday evening, August 20th, at 6:30 PM, to discuss The Varieties of Religious Experience, a Study of Human Nature. This book is a psychology classic on religious impulses by William James. If you haven't read it since college, or even if you haven't read it at all, join our informal discussion of this fascinating and ever-relevant gem. Published in 1902 on the basis of lectures he gave at the University of Edinburgh, it is almost required reading for everyone interested in the subject today. It is available in paperback.

This meeting of the Secular Humanist Society of New York's Book Club is in the 3rd floor community room at the Muhlenberg Public Library (elevator at sidewalk level), located conveniently at 209 W. 23rd St. (near 7th Ave.). Our meetups are free and open to everyone.

Each Book Club meeting is also a book swap. Bring in books that you're using for door stops or are collecting dust. Take whatever you like. Anything left over goes to the public library where we meet.

Anybody interested can join us for Thai food about a block away, after the meeting. Feel free to call or e-mail me if you have any questions.
