Cosmos and Apple Pies, Chicago Celebrates Sagan Day!

Tomorrow, November 12, Chicago is celebrating Sagan Day with cosmos and (not-)from-scratch apple pies!

The Women Thinking Free Foundation teamed up with the University of Chicago Secular Alliance, DePaul Alliance for Freethought, Chicago Skeptics and the Northwestern University Secular Student Alliance to organize this celebration! And… IT’S FREE!

You’re invited to Chicago’s Carl Sagan Day 2011! Come meet up and hang out with Chicago’s secular community, right in the heart of the city. We’ll have a couple of short talks about the man himself and screen an episode of Cosmos! (And, of course, there will be socializing hour ;) )

More information available here:
Food* and drink** will be provided!

  1. My campus freethinkers group watched Cosmos and had homemade apple pie on Wednesday to celebrate (I made the pie myself and planed the event). I thought that was pretty cool. We don’t have the ability to do something big and awesome though, and I’m not anywhere near a big city or anything interesting. Stupid tiny city.

  2. I wasn’t able to organize anything. But I did manage to make an apple pie from scratch and talk to my five year old about astronomy and Cosmos (a few episodes of which we recently watched together).
