Sasha Sagan: Rituals for Non-Believers

We don’t need religion to give our lives meaning, so how do we find it?

Thursday, October 8 at 7pm ET, on the next Skeptical Inquirer Presents live online event, Sasha Sagan will join host Leighann Lord to give us a little help on our quest for meaning in the cosmos.

Inspired by the work of her parents Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan, Sasha Sagan will explore how skeptics and nonbelievers celebrate, mourn, and navigate life’s rites of passage without the infrastructure of religion, highlighting the astronomical and biological roots of many human traditions.

Sasha Sagan is the author of For Small Creatures Such As We: Rituals for Finding Meaning in Our Unlikely World. She has worked as a television producer, filmmaker, editor, writer, and speaker in the U.S. and abroad who regularly speaks on the ways science can inform our celebrations and how we mark the passage of time.

Free registration is required to watch this live Zoom event, so sign up right now!
