NYC Skeptics Public Lecture Series presents

Nothing: Something to Believe In

A lecture by Nica Lalli, author of Nothing: Something to Believe In

“An engaging personal account of nonbelief…well written and often acerbically funny, an edgy quest for meaning outside the boundaries of organized religion.” - Publishers Weekly

“This deceptively simple story, straightforwardly told, is the one to read if you want to know what it’s like to be an atheist or agnostic in a society that takes its theism for granted as some great good. Theists in America should all read Nothing.” - E.D. Buckner, Southern Director for the Council for Secular Humanism

Unfortunately, Nica has had to cancel. However, we are so thrilled that Rebecca Watson will instead be lecturing on “Women and Skepticism!”
