There are festivities beforehand as well.
Guests will include practically everyone who has written a book about atheism that appeared on the New York Times Bestsellers List:
- Richard Dawkins, author of The God Delusion
- Sam Harris, author of The End of Faith and Letter to a Christian Nation
- Christopher Hitchens, author of God is Not Great
- Ayaan Hirsi Ali, author of Infidel
- Daniel Dennett, author of Breaking the Spell
In addition, there will be Charles Darwin’s great-great-grandson Matthew Chapman, science advocate Eugenie Scott, humorist Pastor Deacon Fred, and many others!
How much to attend, you ask?
A bit pricey, for good reason.
Admission for the full conference runs from a total of $170 (for a student with ID) to $235 for non-member adults. More specifics can be found in the PDF. At the moment, registration is not online.
