“Unless a tree has borne blossoms in spring, you will vainly look for fruit on it in autumn.” — Walter Scott

Sunday April 14: 2:00-4:00 pm:

Non-Fiction Readers Book Discussion Group. Usually meets on the 2nd Sunday of each month. This meeting is focused on books, magazine articles, podcasts, and other published information of interest to Humanists. New discussion participants always welcomed!  Please join us at the Huntsville Public Library on Monroe Street in Huntsville, room A/B (to the right of the lobby).

Sunday, April 20: 1:00-3:30 pm:

No regular meeting – Library is closed for Easter.

However, if you are looking for secular companionship on Easter, Travis Hardin invites you to an off-list Monty Python Review at his apartment at 1 p.m.

After a leisurely late lunch, we’ll view (and sing along with?) videos of famous songs and scenes including The Galaxy Song, Every Sperm is Sacred, and Always Look on the Bright Side of Life – the latter particularly appropriate for Easter, as it was sung by Brian while he was being crucified. Brian was a character born in the stable adjacent to Jesus who spends his life being mistaken for a messiah in the 1979 Monty Python’s Life of Brian. Only clips, not whole movies, will be offered. Bring your favorite to share on Flash Drive or the internet link, or other entertainment fellow humanists might like.

Trav will make a main dish, and there will be deviled eggs, a dessert, and cold drinks. Attendees are welcome to bring more.

Space is limited to nine guests, so please RSVP on Meetup or by phone to Travis at 683-8038. Directions will be sent to you when you respond.

Revolution is as unpredictable as an earthquake and as beautiful as spring. Its coming is always a surprise, but its nature should not be. Rebecca Solnit

Monday, April 22: 6:00-7:30pm:

Philosophy Café. Open and relaxed discussion on philosophical topics continues on the fourth Monday of each month. We are meeting at KEEGAN’S OF HUNTSVILLE, 200 West Side Square, Suite 60, Huntsville, AL 35801. An assortment of salads, sandwiches, Irish inspired fare, and beverages are available for purchase (and to lubricate discussion). http://www.keeganshuntsville.com/ New faces are always welcome. (PS – Happy Hour ends at 6 – you might want to arrive a few minutes early.)
