Godless Citizens in a Godly Republic: Atheists in American Public Life

Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at 4:30pm to 5:30pm

Olin Library, Room 107
Olin Library, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

What does it mean to be American and an atheist?  Does the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protect religious liberty to all nonbelievers?

In a Chats in the Stacks book talk, Isaac Kramnick, professor emeritus of government at Cornell, and R. Laurence Moore, professor emeritus of history at Cornell, will present their new book, Godless Citizens in a Godly Republic: Atheists in American Public Life (W. W. Norton & Company, 1st edition; Aug. 21, 2018). They will discuss the fascinating history and the legal cases that have questioned religious supremacy.

This book talk is sponsored by Olin Library. Light refreshments served.
