Theresa Caputo - ''The Long Island Medium'' is once again coming to Edmonton. As part of our constructive activism, we will attend as guests arrive, handing out psychic bingo cards and informational leaflets on what makes a psychic ''real'' We do not chant, we stand quietly and allow people to approach us. This is not an aggressive protest event but rather an 'educate and demonstrate' event. We have to stand on the opposite corner from the parking lot, so will meet in front of the Coliseum Inn. The event starts at 7:30pm, so we will be there for the hour prior to engage with attendees as they arrive. You may bring a hand held sign if you wish, but please keep it respectful. Some ideas are: Be Wise Question Everything Ghosts Aren't Real It's Okay To Be Skeptical For Entertainment Purposes ONLY!... See MoreSee Less

Small Gods - Terry Pratchett At this meeting we will discuss the entire book. Small Gods is the thirteenth of Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels, published in 1992.] It tells the origin of the god Om, and his relations with his prophet, the reformer Brutha. In the process, it satirises religious institutions, people, and practices, and the role of religion in political life. 'Just because you can't explain it, doesn't mean it's a miracle.' In the beginning was the Word. And the Word was: 'Hey, you!'
