Greta Speaking in Stanford and Cincinnati, 10/5 and 10/16

I have a couple of speaking events coming up! One is in the Bay Area at Stanford, and one is in Cincinnati at the FIG@20 conference — the 20th Anniversary Celebration of the Free Inquiry Group of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. FIG@20 promises to be an awesome time: the other speakers include PZ Myers, Jamila Bey, JT Eberhard, American Atheist president Dave Silverman, Darrel Rey, (the creator of the “Sex and Secularism” study), Tom Flynn, and Tim Madigan. Lunch and dinner on Saturday are included in the registration fee, which is very reasonable, and is ridiculously cheap for students.

I’ll be speaking at Stanford University on Wednesday, October 5, hosted by the Atheists, Humanists, and Agnostics at Stanford (AHA!). The FIG@20 conference in Cincinnati is on Saturday 10/16 and Sunday 10/17. For both events, my topic will be “Why Are You Atheists So Angry?” (What can I say. It’s a barn-burner.) Details are below. If you’re going to be in/near Palo Alto or Cincinnati, I hope to see you there!

Oh, and while I’m at it: The flyer for the Stanford talk is so far beyond awesome, I have to show it to you at a nice big size. Those are some angry glasses!

    *shakes fist* Darn you! I work until 7 pm and it takes half an hour to get to stanford from where I am! Not fair!

    The word “fuel” was supposed to have a strikethrough tag, but I guess that’s not supported (not faulting anyone for that).

    My comment is awaiting moderation? Does that mean it needs to be toned down? How much more moderate can I hope to get?

    /silly semantic type

    I wasn’t at all sure I could make to the AHA event, but I was there, and very much enjoyed seeing Greta speak a second time. (I was amused to note it was a much smaller room than when she spoke in Utah. : ) Wonderful speech, and thank you to Greta.

    (PS … I hope you didn’t miss your train, Greta. I was waiting for my train across the tracks from the platform for trains going to San Francisco (I was going the other way) and I didn’t see you.)
