Jen says the event went very well:
I actually think one of the best parts was the Q&A at the end, because it really showcased Greta’s talents. She’s prepared to answer pretty much any question about atheism, and she can do so in a concise, punchy, memorable matter. This was especially important for the couple “questions” that were really people (probably philosophy students) pontificating for 20 minutes about some theological concept against atheism that didn’t relate to the topic at all. While my response probably would have been a short “Irrelevant, moving on,” Greta replied intelligently just as quickly.
I think I can say from experience that Q & A is almost always more interesting than a person’s speech itself.
It’s nice to have speakers who have interesting things to talk about, but it’s *wonderful* when you have speakers who can also think quickly on their feet!
