The location of my upcoming talk at Iowa State University has changed! Plus I’m having a book party at Modern Times in San Francisco for my upcoming book, Coming Out Atheist: How to Do It, How to Help Each Other, and Why.

Here are the details of all my upcoming speaking events for the next few months. In addition to San Francisco, I’ll be speaking in Ames IA, St. Peter MN, Salt Lake City (the American Atheists convention), San Francisco CA, San Jose CA, Phoenix AZ (the SSA Con West), and Chicago, IL (Humanism At Work, the Foundation Beyond Belief conference). If you’re in any of these places, I hope to see you there!

    Wow! It kind of sucks that there are several free and low cost events to hear you, but in Chicago it’s only one location and that’s $129.
