Zoom Book Talk & Friday May 13th Event

A quick message to let you know about two events later this week.

On Thursday, May 12 at 7:00 pm ET, I will return to Skeptical inquirer Presents to talk about my new book, The Uses of Delusion: Why It’s Not Always Rational to Be Rational. You can register for this zoom event here. As a teaser, I will let you know that the talk will include mention of both Patty Hearst and the recent TV show Severance.

This Friday, May 13th, the Freethought Society is sponsoring their first “Friggatriskaidekaphobia Treatment Center’s International Educational Seminar via Zoom,” and I will be the keynote speaker. The festivities begin at 6:45 PM ET with standup comedian Ian Harris. There are a number of other speakers, and my keynote will be at 8:00 PM ET. The direct link to the zoom event can be found here. No registration is required. Should be fun.

That’s it for now.
