Buzzy Jackson will speak about and sign her new book, The Inspirational Atheist, on Thursday, January 8th at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
A collection of uplifting quotations from some of mankind’s most important philosophers, scientists, writers, and comedians, The Inspirational Atheist will be a treasured daily companion for humanists who believe that life has meaning when we live it meaningfully, independent of the existence of a higher power. With words from Carl Sagan, Charlotte Bronte, Bertrand Russell, Joan Didion, and more on topics ranging from love and nature to wisdom and beauty, this book is a celebration of the sublime without the divine. 

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased in advance, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.

In Misdiagnosed, an account of her misadventures from misdiagnosis to recovery, Jody offers tips on how to ask doctors the right questions, listen to your body, and choose health over illness.

Rosalind Wiseman is committed to helping communities shift the way they think about children and teens’ emotional and physical wellbeing. Her book, Queen Bees & Wannabes, fundamentally changed the way that adults looked at girls’ friendships and conflicts. From how they choose their best friends, how they express their anger, their boundaries with boys, and their relationships with parents—Wiseman showed how girls of every background are profoundly influenced by their interactions with each other.

Rosalind’s newest book, Masterminds & Wingmen, shows what’s really happening in boys’ lives. It creates a new language and analytical framework to understand the power of boys’ social hierarchies and how these influence their decision-making and emotional well-being.

Event Includes: free talk, question & answer period, and book signing. Donations for Attention Homes will be accepted at the door.
