Our friendly group represents humanists, skeptics, agnostics, Brights and atheists from northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. We are interested in developing activities and meetings for like-minded individuals. Our current members live mostly within the Rockford and Beloit stateline area, but range as far as Janesville, Freeport, Rochelle, and some towns west of Chicago.
Our book club is going strong! We have more new members, and the new meeting room at the remodeled library is really nice - big and bright.
Our next book will be Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies, by Jared Diamond. This book is 498 pages, so we will concentrate on the first half on May 28th at Talcott Library.
Check the comments section closer to the date to see whether, and where we may be meeting for a late lunch/early dinner afterward. It is becoming a thing! Also becoming a thing is one of our members bringing fresh eggs from her farm for anyone who wants to buy some. We will try to update both possibilities in the comments section later.
As always - you do not have to have read the book to come to our book discussions. Everyone is welcome to join the conversation.
