We now have a location! Our booth is going to be in front of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, about 10 booths in from the corner of Martin Luther and Tryon. We'll have the banner up! Come join us in welcoming members of the community to our booth!
We have an update! We will be hosting Seth Andrews at the Cabarrus County Public Library on Union Street in Concord, NC! The library is connected to a free parking garage. Please see our event pages on all of our social media sites for more information.
Drum roll, please!
CAA is pleased to announce that we will be hosting Seth Andrews in the Queen City for the second time! On September 19th, he will be making a presentation regarding his latest book, "Sacred Cows."
Seth's last presentation, "Confessions of a Bible-Belt Atheist," brought people to Charlotte from cities and states away to attend.
A former Christian broadcaster, he now hosts the extremely popular "Thinking Atheist" podcast and helps maintain a very large online community and forum of the same name. His last book, "Deconverted," detailed his journey out of Christianity, as well as discussing the rise of reason and secularism in the United States.
...the Fourth be with you!
What a weekend we just had, everyone! CAA participated for the first time ever in RAIN's AIDS walk on Saturday. Back in January, we set a goal to donate $300 to the cause. Not only did we reach our goal within 24 hours of posting it, by this past Saturday we had raised $1560! Not too shabby for a small group! The walk was a lot of fun, and pictures have been posted on our social media sites. The officers and the team captain for the event are so proud and full of love for our membership for their generosity and efforts to contribute in positive ways to our community. We can't thank you enough!
