Our next book club meeting is going to be on Saturday, December 5th, at 2 pm in the Clear Conscience Cafe. Come for the lively discussion, stay for the tea and sandwiches.
While doing some research on our current book (Don’t Sleep There Are Snakes), I came across some media extras that add to the content of the book. The first is an interview conducted with the author Daniel Everett on the Freedom From Religion Foundation podcast on August 22, 2009.

Only one more week to finish up the book! I have a lot of notes and I imagine there will be a lot of discussion about this book. But don’t be intimidated–everyone is welcome, whether you haven’t finished the book yet or even if you really didn’t like the book. We have a big list of other books to decide on for our next BSBC meeting, so come if you would like to add to the book list or choose our next book.
Check out our new Facebook page. I’ve started a forum for our book list and everyone who has a book suggestion should list it there as well.
