RECENT NEWS!Seth Andrews Returns to SLO
Sep 9, 2016
Seth Andrews returns to San Luis Obispo with a new talk entitled The Mystery Letter, a personal story that examines religious bigotry and the often manufactured martyrdom of Fox News Christians who (freely) wail about their lack of religious freedom.
Seth's presentation will make you laugh, will occasionally make your jaw drop, and will hopefully leave you encouraged and emboldened.
Doors Open at 6:00pm for Food & Drinks, Show at 6:30pm
Cafe menu is available for bites with wine & beer cash bar. Admission is $5 and open to the public with additional donations much appreciated! Plan to hang out with Seth after the show for a social mixer and book signing. Seating is limited on a first come first served basis.

Seth has chronicled his transition from believer to atheist in his autobiography Deconverted: a Journey from Religion to Reason and his weekly radio podcast is downloaded over 1 million times a month.
