Atheism and Political Activism Discussion

Join us at Mayday Books in Minneapolis at 7pm, Wednesday Oct 24 for a discussion on how our atheism informs our political views and activism. A panel of authors from the recently published book Atheist Voices of Minnesota will start off the discussion by sharing their own views on the subject, and then the audience will be invited to join the discussion.

The discussion will be moderated by George Kane, and the panelists include Ryan Bolin, Greg Laden, M.A. Melby, Kim Socha, and Stephanie Zvan, all Atheist Voices of Minnesota authors. The book will be for sale at the event, and is also available at,, and other booksellers, and directly through the Minnesota Atheists online store. It's also available for Kindle and Nook.

Mayday Books is a unique and fascinating little bookstore. Located in the West Bank community in Minneapolis, it’s a volunteer collective dedicated to selling radical and left-wing literature, and providing a space for political education and camaraderie.

After the discussion, which should end around 8pm or shortly after, those who want can hang out at Mayday Books for some social time and further discussion. Some refreshments will be on hand.

    George, Kim and I will be bringing something to snack on - any other volunteers? Mayday Books even said beer and wine are OK!

    Would it be possible for me to obtain the contact info of some or all of these fine authors? A lot of college-age secularists won't be able to make this meetup, but CASH is having a discussion on how secularism affects voting and political priorities on Nov 1st. We'd be very interested in having some politically active members of the community offer their insights.
