Description:

CFI-Michigan is pleased to co-sponsor this lecture with The Birmingham Temple Congregation for Humanistic Judaism

Greta Christina will speak on her newest book Coming Out Atheist: How to Do It, How to Help Each Other, and Why (Greta will also be in Grand Rapids on Sept 10th)

About the Book: “Coming out as an atheist is a powerful, liberating act. It makes life better for you, for other atheists, and for the world. But telling people you’re an atheist can be risky. What are the best ways to do it? And how can we help each other take this step?

In this compassionate, friendly, down-to-earth how-to guide, popular author of Why Are You Atheists So Angry? 99 Things That Piss Off the Godless and blogger Greta Christina, offers concrete strategies and guiding philosophies for coming out as an atheist. Based on hundreds of coming-out stories, the book offers a map of the territory atheists are likely to encounter and ideas on how to pick the path that’s best for you.

For atheists who are already out, it gives practical ideas on how to help others join you in the sunlight. And for atheists who are on the fence, it offers guidance on making that decision — and gentle encouragement to take that step.” (Amazon.com)

Meetings are open to the Public.

Ample Free on-site parking is available and this event is handicap accessible.
