Sasha Sagan’s session will focus on the Solstice as a natural holiday and a source of secular inspiration. Her session will feature a talk, discussion and an original video she created with the Humanist Hub’s Humanist Learning Lab, as well as an original song about the solstice by Antje Duvekot, an award-winning musician widely recognized as one of Boston’s top singer songwriters.

While Sagan’s Learning Lab video will debut at Humanist Community Day, you can see a related video by HLL Teacher and Coordinator Nick Bohl, an accomplished YouTube artist, below:
