The FreeThinker Book club meets in the basement of the Westwood Unitarian Church at 7:00 PM on the last Wednesday of the month from Oct-March. The format varies but typically begins with a round table check-in and first reactions to the book. This is followed by a free ranging discussion, triggered by questions from other members.

All are welcome – atheists, humanists, agnostics, and theists and of course ‘free thinkers!!

The club members have chosen the following texts for this coming season.

This month we are reviewing

Cows, Pigs, Wars, and Witches: The Riddles of Culture by Marvin Harris

Marvin Harris answers these and other perplexing questions about human behavior, showing that no matter how bizarre a people’s behavior may seem, it always stems from identifiable and intelligble sources
