MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR: Humanist Books for Your Reading List

Posted April 20, 2011

At the American Humanist Association 70th Annual Conference, I purchased books written by our Humanist awardees—Rebecca Goldstein’s 36 Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction, Steve Wozniak’s iWoz, Candace Gingrich-Jones’ The Accidental Activist, Bart Ehrman’s Forged, and Judy Norsigian’s Our Bodies, Ourselves—and what a treat it was to get them signed by the authors! After having already read classic atheist works by Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens, I’m excited to catch up on my reading and learn more about our Humanist awardees. Is there another humanist or atheist book you’re a fan of? Share it with us at hnn@americanhumanist.org.
