Prominent local authors Susan and Stephen Perry will be the featured speakers.
Susan’s non-fiction books include Writing in Flow: Keys to Enhanced Creativity; Playing Smart: The Family Guide to Enriching, Offbeat Learning Activities; and Loving in Flow: How the Happiest Couples Get and Stay That Way. Her articles, essays, reviews, and columns have appeared in publications such as Psychology Today, Child, Los Angeles Magazine, Writer’s Digest, and USA Today. She has also written a novel, Kylie’s Heel, a tale of twin sisters, one an atheist and the other a born-again Christian. Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, renowned author, philosopher, MacArthur Fellow, and Humanist of the Year (2011) wrote: “Kylie’s Heel burrows deep into the mind with its pathos and intelligence. Its power slowly builds into a crescendo of insight. This is a novel I will never forget, no more than if I myself had lived it.”

Blood Donation Drive
We're hosting a special blood drive event with a local hospital this month along with our monthly meeting. Starting at 1pm (after the talk), volunteers will be able to donate blood. There will be a special bus from the hospital that will facilitate the donation. Donations will be accepted until 5:30pm. That's past our normal meeting time but we will have games available and a movie playing for those waiting their turn. For more details on blood donation, visit http://AtheistsUnited.org/blood
A complimentary lunch is provided after the talk. We’ll get a chance to meet, talk and get to know one another.
Children are welcome to join our AU Kids program. It’s like a Sunday school for secular parents. The children have another area where they play and learn during the main event. Parents are free to attend the main event or stay with their children during the meeting. After the main event, we all come together for lunch.
This meeting is free and open to the public.
Free parking is available in the lot adjacent to the building.
