Activities

In addition to our live entertainment, the authors' panel, and awesome speakers, we have a number of activities scheduled throughout the day.

Emcee, Awards, and Presentations

Andrea WarrenWe are proud to announce Andrea Warren returning as our emcee for the day. She teaches how to identify the epistemological disease of mysticism and combat it with honest communication, grace, style, and sometimes humor. 

Already a best-selling author, her latest book, "52 Answers to Superstition, Religion, and Ignorance", has been a hit in the freethought movement. 

Andrea spends her time writing, speaking, and taking care of her family.  She is married and has three sons and one grandson.  Check out her blog at blog.socialiqlady.com or visit her website at www.socialiqlady.com.

Secular Advocacy Day

On Monay, join us as we meet with several elected officials to help them better understand our secular viewpoints. We'll start the morning with a brief overview of our goals, then split into small meetings where we'll be able to speak our mind. Even if you aren't interested in talking, just being with us on this important day will be appreciated.

Secular Advocacy Day is hosted by the Secular Coalition for California.  Learn more.

Authors' Tables and Panel

Authors from all over are encouraged to join us at Freethought Day, starting in the morning with our Authors' Panel bringing them together on stage for a lively Q&A session about topics fun and serious. Check out our confirmed authors.

Following the panel, you'll be able to meet them, shake their hands, and get their autographs. Don't forget to bring some cash to buy their books!

For more information, learn about our Authors' Panel. If you're an author and want to join us, please let us know!

Group Photo
