Important Update! Note date and time change.
Our next book club meeting will be on Saturday, November 5 at 5 PM at one of the usual places. (Today, we met indoors in a nice conference room with left-over bagels at the far end of our usual building, due to scheduling conflicts and iffy weather.) Stay tuned for updates.
We decided to change the
time to 5 PM date to November 5 so that people could attend both the Granite State Skeptics Skepticamp and the Book Club meeting.
Our book is going to be 3-time winner Mary Roach’s Stiff, in honor of Halloween.

"Everyone was doing it...I just wanted to be popular!"
Come join us tomorrow (Saturday, Sep. 23, at 3pm) for an irreverent discussion on Christopher Moore’s book Lamb and the story of Biff, Jesus’s BFF.
Unfortunately, we can’t meet outside, because as of tonight the forecast is 80% chance of rain. Also, there is some sort of event happening in our normal spot in the Cafeteria of the Northwest building, so Andy, my faithful book club cohort and husband, has booked a conference room in a different spot in the building. (For the regulars, you can just go to the doors of our indoor spot and follow the outdoor path–directions posted below.) I swear it’s easy to get to!
DIRECTIONS TO OUR MEETING SPOT (PDF with pretty pictures)
Don’t let the weather deter you from coming. We always welcome new members, and if you have a biblically-related opinion you’d like to share but haven’t read the book, we welcome you too. As usual, bring a snack if you’re so inclined (most people do, you want to be cool, right?).
Our guest speaker this month is Amanda Knief, Government Relations Manager of the Secular Coalition for America. Amanda will tell us “true tales of working as an atheist on Capitol Hill and with the Obama administration, and also how we need everyone to get involved.”
Could there be a better lead-in to Zombie and Vampire Season than the inside scoop on working in Washington?
We will be meeting at our regular time and place, at 7 PM on Monday, September 26. 2011, upstairs at Tommy Doyle’s, 96 Winthrop St in Harvard Square.
