Ehrenreich has been an outspoken atheist since the 1970s. Her nontheism is a family traditon (“the race of ‘none’ marches on"). Her books include Nickeled and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By In America, a celebrated expose. She will be autographing copies of her newest bestseller, Bright-Sided: How Positive Thinking is Undermining America (which includes a section on religion).
FFRF will have a sales and book table at the event.
