So I had to go up close and check it out:
I like that Meet author and atheist! It’s like advertising for a book reading by saying “Come meet the author!… but if that doesn’t work for you, here’s another selling point: He’s an atheist!” Actually, I suppose being an atheist writer is an “in” thing at bookstores right now.

I’m looking forward to the reading/signing. Hopefully, there will be Q & A time as well. If you’re in the area, please consider coming to Barbara’s Bookstore on Tuesday night at 7:30 (CST)!
It is a Chicago Reader “recommended” event, after all.
