Hemant Mehta, now perhaps best known for his popular blog, The Friendly Atheist, gained fame at a young age when he auctioned his “soul,” his offer to attend church services for an hour, and donated the money to the Secular Student Alliance. The event brought national attention, and his subsequent book, I Sold My Soul on eBay, sealed his fame.
An honors graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he founded Students WithOut Religious Dogma, Mehta has since served as chair of the board of the Secular Student Alliance, where he is still active. He serves on the board of the Foundation Beyond Belief.
The meeting is open to the public and free to all AU members and first-time guests. Repeat guests are asked to pay $5. Child care is provided free and lunch, following the meeting, is also free.
