Should we create a Humanist political party?

Event: Inquiring Minds Discussion Group

July 02nd, 2016 9:30 am - Saturday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

Topic: Should we create a Humanist political party?

Considering all that's happening in the political scene this year, this could be a very interesting subject indeed! What would a Humanist political party look like? Being largely freethinkers, what would the platform look like? Come prepared to have a lively discussion!

If anybody can get there early, by around 9:00, I will need help setting up tables and chairs. I'm not supposed to lift anything heavy right now. Much appreciated.

Find some articles or links to help with the discussion if you like and feel free to post related articles in the comments section below.

If you are interested, a group of us like to go out to lunch afterward. We will wrap up the meeting around noon so you just might be hungry by then.

Hosted by Richard Dewey the first Saturday of each month.

The Girl on the Train

Event: Book Club

September 24th, 2016 10:00 am - Saturday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

Join us to discuss The Girl on the Train: A Novel by Paula Hawkins.

from Amazon
EVERY DAY THE SAME
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

UNTIL TODAY
And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
