"As much as we can, whenever we can, we have to tell our stories. Exactly as the writers in this book have done."
-from the Foreword by Greta Christina
Atheists have turned a corner in public visibility in recent years, but they nevertheless remain one of America's most misunderstood and mistrusted groups of people. Atheist Voices of Minnesota attempts to address these preconceptions by letting thirty-six atheists openly share their personal and unique stories. The results are touching, fascinating, and diverse. This collection is an excellent introduction to atheism, and will inspire other atheists to come out to their family and friends.
It will be available in paperback and in eBook format for Kindle and Nook. Available for pre-order on Amazon and B&N.com. It's also available directly through the Minnesota Atheists online store. Remember, all net proceeds from the sale of this book go to Minnesota Atheists.
