If you can make it, definitely do! This Sunday is Freethought Day in Sacramento, California (October 12, 2014), with speakers and entertainment and all kinds of vendors and fun. You can register at EventBrite. The all-day outdoor event is free. But you can donate to get reserved seating, or attend the Saturday night VIP reception this 11th (I’ll be there), or even yet other things. I can’t guarantee who will be at the reception Saturday night, but among the VIPs featured Sunday are Rebecca Watson, Phil Zuckerman, Greta Christina, Ross Blocher (of Oh No Ross and Carrie), illusionist Ryan Kane, Dan Arel (Parenting without God), Brendan Powell Smith (The Brick Bible), poet Victor Harris, Tom Beasley (from the An American Atheist podcast), David Fitzgerald (The Mormons), and more. Camp Quest West will also be providing a Fun Zone for kids.
I might take the stage briefly, but I will be tabling all day and selling heaping wadges of my books at cut rate prices. All my backdated stock that’s perfectly readable but in somewhat rough condition aesthetically. This is your chance to get dirt cheap copies of most of my books for your friends, family, colleagues, or yourself, or to donate to your local library, or wherever. My newest two books (published this year) will not be sold at discount but at their regular price, but I will have them for sale, too. I am fully setup now to take credit cards (and I always take cash and personal checks). So stop by and help buy me out!
(And for those who’ve been wondering, my intense travel and teaching schedule has kept me away from my blog for weeks. And this won’t let up anytime soon. So expect my comments queue to languish for weeks and get cleared in bulk every once in a while now until things change. And my posting will probably be sporadic as well, even though I have tons of stuff I want to blog about!)
