I’ll be announcing the events along the Richard Carrier Exists Tour as they are finalized. Next in is Salt Lake City, Utah. That’s my second stop on the move across country. And that’s Wednesday night, May 25. Come verify my historicity! Feel free to seek pictures & signatures.
Sponsored by Atheists of Utah, I’ll be speaking on The Intersection of Humanism and Polyamory. Description:
Polyamory, like atheism, is becoming more open and acceptable, yet faces similar stigma and misunderstanding. Polyamory acceptance is actually a humanist cause. Ethical non-monogamy in all its forms represents part of the final breakdown of religion’s hold on how humans define and enjoy their relationships, and religion’s attempt to control human (and especially female) sexuality. Dr. Carrier will discuss his experiences with polyamory, and the social and philosophical connections between polyamory and humanism, and how the humanist community can approach the subject supportively and informedly.
Starts at 6:30pm at the Salt Lake City Public Library on 210 East 400 Street, Conference Room 4 (4th floor). You must get tickets in advance. They will not be sold at the door. And there are only sixty. So get yours as soon as possible!
I’ll also be doing Q&A, and selling and signing books there or somewhere after.
