Upcoming speaking schedule

Over the next couple months I’m going to be making my way from coast to coast. Here’s my current schedule, in case you want to catch one of my talks:

Thousand Oaks, CA
Secular Student Alliance Southern California Leadership Summit

Then my Spring Break Minnesota Tour!

St. Cloud, MN
Secular Student Alliance at St. Cloud State University

Morris, MN
University of Minnesota Morris Freethinkers

Minneapolis, MN
Campus Atheists, Skeptics, and Humanists at the University of Minnesota

Woooooo, partaaaay! …Wait, doesn’t everyone go to Minnesota for spring break? No? Hey, any SSA affiliates in warm states, you know you totally want me to come visit next winter.

I’ll release the specific times and locations for the Minnesota talks once we get closer.

Boston, MA
American Humanist Association Annual Conference

I may have a trip to North and South Carolina thrown in there, but those aren’t completely set in stone yet.

…Yes, I know, I’m crazy. Also, my PhD is going to take 24 years to finish.

    Hmm, nothing near here. Ah well. Best of luck with the speaking engagements, and the 24 year PhD.

    Woo! I live in Minnesota! My home town is St. Cloud, but I live nearer the Twin Cities (Minneapolis) now (Inver Grove Heights). SQUEEEEEEEEE!

  3. 3

    Alas, UW requires you complete the degree in >=10 years ;)

  4. 4

    Ugh, no comment editing. I meant <=10 years! Perhaps that was a Freudian slip, having done my own PhD at UW, and it felt like it took… a while.

    You have the benefit of knowing where you’re getting your PhD from

    Kelley Freeman

    Wooo, come to South Carolina! \O/

    Oz Tilson

    crazy or not- I only care about where you will be just before Mother’s dayWOOT Canada gets McCreight!

    I guess the UK is, practically speaking, just not going to happen… :(

  9. 9

    One day! Just probably not in the next year. Hope I publish a book or something :P

    You’re going to be in Morris and you won’t make it over to Fargo? What a shame. Maybe I’ll have to come down there.

    Purely a random thought, because it’s not your cup of tea, but I really wish someone were talking, highish profile, about non-theism in religion. As a religious non-theist myself, y’know…I suppose I’d write about it myself, but there’s no way I’d consider myself an authority about it. Mind you, judging by my specific searches for non-theist Quaker stuff, not many people are.

    On a more positive note, I guess that means it’s pretty likely to happen eventually. I find it hard to imagine you won’t have your own book sooner or later, if you want to go for that.

  13. 13

    I’m sure you’ve seen nontheistfriends.org, since a Google search turns that up easily. Seems to involve James Riemermann, who is part of the Twin Cities Friends Meeting in Minnesota, which has a regular meeting of “Quakers without God.” Somewhere on my shelves — can’t find it now — there’s a book… ah, here it is: http://www.quakerbooks.org/god

  14. 14

    I had no idea there was an SSA presence at St. Cloud State. Looking forward to it!

    Sam Barnett-Cormack

    Indeed, I want a copy. If it was available on Kindle, I’d’ve bought it already.

    Cory Albrecht

    You’re going to AHAAC instead of NECSS? :-(

  17. 17

    Any chance of a SoCal meet-up for those of us who can’t quite afford the SSA event in time and money? Also, I find it hilarious that the event is being held at California Lutheran University when there are so many non-religious universities in the area…

  18. 18

    Ooh, I’m hoping for a North Carolina visit… then maybe I can make it from Virginia Tech!

    Bruce Coppola

    When are you coming to Detroit? You chicken or something? We’re actually very nice. Hey, we’ll even throw in a Chevy!

  20. 20

    This must be a sign from the Gods.Ever since I did a work on George Manuel, Kamloops has been appearing regularly to me. I thought it wasn’t that big of a town, but it’s like the tenth time I see it referenced in 5 months.

  21. 21

    Oakland is driving distance and right at the end of finals week and I’ll definitely deserve it, but whether there’ll be money for tickets is a crapshoot. There’s a chance I’ll be there.

  22. 22

    Car keys: If you can prove to a dealer you own the car (which might be difficult as the registration is in the glove box, yes?), you can give them the VIN and buy a new key. I did this on an eight-year-old Subaru when my key started developing a fracture that looked as though it would fail soon and made it impossible to reliably be copied.I’m assuming that in the future, you’ll make a copy…

    Best wishes for your travels, and good luck with your key problem!*Starts scheming to entice you further east in the fall*

  24. 24

    That’s pretty awesome… I wish there were a locksmith like that out in here in hickville, Missouri. If I want to lock myself out of something, it better be between 9-5, Monday-Friday… @_@ Enjoy your busy schedule~

  25. 25

    Blargh…Eugene is so close, yet, so far :/

    EDIT: OMG OMG I FOUND MY SPARE CAR KEY! IT WAS…in my car. WTF. I literally screamed “WHY WOULD I PUT YOU THERE?!?!?!” when I found it in the valet key compartment….Ha.Hahah.Heh.Hahahahahaheh!Hahahahhhahaahahaha!*continues laughing maniacally*

  27. 27

    “Hide-A-Key┬«”. Just sayin’.

  28. 28

    Student tickets are only $20! That’s the only reason I can afford it :)

  29. 29

    Yay!! I’m so glad at least part of that whole thing got resolved. And, I can’t wait to see you in Oakland! :D :D :D

  30. 30

    OAKLAND!!!!! AHHHHHHH!!!! I think that’s also the weekend of an obedience trial … but hey, the pup and I would probably both enjoy an atheist meetup more! :D

  31. 31

    That sounded really fun until I realized it was a dog show. >.>

  32. 32

    Is there any chance that your talks will be recorded and sent to YouTube or someplace similar for us to watch?

  33. 33

    Oakland is a bit over four hours away. I wish I could go very much, but with the cost of gas and the ticket…Really disappointing. Hopefully you’re far enough from the bible belt I’m in, that our rapture party wont be crashed!
