LogiCalLA - January 13-15, 2017

 http://logicalla.com/blog1/

This weekend, January 13-15, I am so thrilled to be a part of this fantastic event!

"In support of the scientific skeptic movement, LogiCalLA creates a place for critical thinkers to meet face-to-face and to experience presentations from nationally recognized speakers who will share their knowledge and insights with us. Come join us as we build a nationwide community at Los Angeles’ only annual conference for skeptics.

Besides having some of the best speakers in the nation coming to speak on a variety of topics, LogiCalLA will present an exciting mix of events during the weekend: Friday night Anti-Superstition party, Saturday night Comedy Show, Sunday Assembly meeting, Sunday afternoon geological field trip,  a movie screening with the director and executive producer, and finally, to end the weekend, an exciting Sunday night secular concert. We hope you can attend this unique and enlightening conference!"
