Ariane Sherine, the woman behind the original Atheist Bus Campaign (and my future wife if I get a say in the matter), has signed on to write The Atheist’s Guide to Christmas:
Sherine, a comedy writer and Guardian journalist, gathered 42 prominent atheist writers, scientists and comedians to contribute to the book, including Richard Dawkins, Charlie Brooker, David Baddiel, Ben Goldacre and Jenny Colgan. It will cover topics from an atheist Christmas miracle to the best Christmas pop hits and is described by the publisher as a funny, thoughtful handbook all about enjoying Christmas.
It is slated to be released October 1st.
More importantly, the advance and royalties for the book will all be given to (an unconfirmed) charity.
