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 (http://www.freethoughthouse.com/atheist-voices-of-mn.html) 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 amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/Atheist-Voices-Minnesota-Anthology-Personal/dp/0615598579/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1343301151&sr=8-1&keywords=atheist+voices+of+minnesota), barnesandnoble.com (http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/atheist-voices-of-minnesota-bill-lehto/1112279747?ean=9780615598574), and other booksellers, and directly through the Minnesota Atheists online store (http://mnatheists.org/store#ecwid:category=[masked]&mode=product&product=[masked]). It's also available for Kindle (http://www.amazon.com/Atheist-Voices-Minnesota-Anthology-ebook/dp/B008TI1270/ref=tmm_kin_title_0) and Nook (http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/atheist-voices-of-minnesota-myers-pz/1112389236?ean=2940014962605).

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.
