Richard Dawkins, DPhil, is a world-renowned scientific intellectual, lecturer, author, and founder of the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science. His books, which include The God Delusion and The Blind Watchmaker, draw on his experience as a leading evolutionary biologist, and have been translated into many languages. Dawkins will be available to sign his books, including the recently released: The Magic of Reality: How We Know What's Really True.  

Sean Faircloth is an author, speaker, former legislator and current Director of Strategy and Policy for the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science. Sean served five terms in the Maine legislature and has put that experience to work by spearheading initiatives designed to increase the secular voice within society and government. Faircloth will be available to sign his book, Attack of the Theocrats: How the Religious Right Harms Us All and What to Do About It.

R. Elisabeth Cornwell, PhD, is Executive Director of the U.S. branch of the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science. Her contributions include originating and expanding the OUT Campaign, which provides a public forum for freethinkers to proclaim their atheism and to let others know they are not alone.

    I've RSVP'd on the HSGP site. Bought my tickets online and I'm bringing my husband. The tickets are in two different locations by the seat numbers... Think we would have any issue with trading seats with someone?
