Topical Evening: Nonbeliever Nation

  • Jun 17, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • The Dumbarton Area Library

6:00 social time

6:30 topical talk and discussion

8:00 more social time

Topic:  RRNAer Ernie Wilson will present on David Niose’s book “Nonbeliever Nation:  The Rise of Secular Americans”  Discussion will follow.  You are not required to have read the book to participate.  Ernie sends the following:

“David Niose has written an important book for secular people. In it he traces the secular history of America as well as the rise of the religious right. He then gives an action plan for opposing the religious right as well as advancing a secular future. I think our members would do well to consider his suggestions.”

You can bring food if you like.  Bring some to share, if you’d like.  Napkins, plates, beverages, forks, and cups will be provided.

    Are these discussions kid friendly? Just in case we can't find a sitter.

      I've already been in touch with Jesse about this, but for those of the rest of you who may be wondering, here are the things to consider. We want the attendees to be able to hear each other and the speaker during the topical segment of the evening, so it would be important for the children to be quiet. We have to leave our meeting spaces clean, and people usually bring food, so the children would have to be neat. And our discussions sometimes go into topics that some parents may not want their children to hear at certain ages. So with all of that considered, if you think bringing your kids would work out OK, you're welcome to bring them.
