The Humanists and Freethinkers of Cape Fear (HFCF) will host nationally recognized writer, blogger, and secular activist Herb Silverman for a reading and discussion of his recent book, An Atheist Stranger in a Strange Religious Land. The program will be held at Pomegranate Books, 4418 Park Avenue, Wilmington, NC, on Sunday, September 17, at 5pm.
Silverman deals with issues of American culture, politics, and religion, in An Atheist Stranger in a Strange Religious Land, from the perspective of a secular atheist outside the mainstream of today’s Republican South. Silverman is known for his original and humorous perspective on the secular movement in the deeply religious Republican South.
Wilmington’s March for Science was short on only one thing: time.
With 750 sign-carrying marchers, a packed auditorium, and an overly-ambitious roster of speakers, organizers opted to cut the pre-March program short. That left half a dozen speakers on the rally equivalent of the cutting room floor.
Humanists and Freethinkers of Cape Fear is the official sponsor of the March for Science – Wilmington, which anticipates a crowd of 500 science-loving locals for a rally at Roland Grise Middle School and march to Hugh MacRae Park. The march will merge with the annual Earth Day Festival at the park, where HFCF will have a booth. HFCF’s support of the march aligns with the organization’s pledge to welcome all people with an interest in promoting science-based reasoning, social justice, secularism, environmentalism, peace, and personal ecological responsibility.
Vyckie Garrison with present a special program for HFCF on Friday, April 15, 2016, 6 p.m., at the YWCA Bridge Center, 127-40 S. College Road, Wilmington, NC. The program is free and open to the public. You are invited to bring light snacks to share.
