Hosted by Kenneth E. Nahigian and Susan McL
From Sacramento Freethinkers Atheists & Nonbelievers (FAN)
Due to popular demand, we’ll be asking actor Sean O’Brien to show us his “Portable Poe.” You like chills? O’Brien will provide a few for you. Word on the street says this is a stunning portrayal, so those who are reluctant to subject themselves to voluntary discomfort can find respite in the Reason Center library with a light-hearted flip-through of Far Side cartoon books with scaredy-cat event organizer Susan.
Sean O’Brien started on the stage in rural Connecticut when he was 14 and has been acting, directing, and teaching theater ever since in New York, Virginia, Montana, and California.
Since retiring from teaching, Sean has been performing in schools and theaters around the Sacramento region. “Bob: The Words of Col. Robert Green Ingersoll” is the newest addition to Sean’s growing production company, Every Corner Productions. He is presently working on two more one-man shows (William Shakespeare and Mark Twain) for presentation in the schools.
Are you looking for a way to meet people and build a friendship or two?Want to help out? We really, really need people to greet people as they arrive and say goodbye when they leave. You’ll probably learn the names of a lot of people and–bonus!–you’ll become a popular and familiar face to everyone around here!
Remember to bring a few bucks if you can to help pay for renting Reason Center. Find the big plastic donation jug (labeled “Reason Center Donations”) and stuff your bucks in there. Even humble SacFAN has to pay to use Reason Center. Even if you can’t afford it, come anyway. The important thing is for you to be there so you can meet your new friends. Friendships take time to build, and this is truly a wonderful group of people.
Reason Center’s expenses (rent, electricity, maintenance, security, insurance) aren’t especially heartwarming, but they’re the infrastructure that makes SacFAN, AOF, Sunday Assembly Sacramento, and others thrive.
Reason Center is the ONLY venue in the region dedicated to freethought, agnosticism, non-theism, rationality, skepticism, atheism, Humanism, and other flavors of non-religiosity. It’s open for you and any friends you’d like to bring, so to continue Reason Center’s success, donate as generously as you can. All donations are very much appreciated, and since Reason Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by IRS regulations. Visit:
