19:00 [19:30] Ariane Sherine: Talk yourself better (ext event)
Description:
Skeptics in the Pub, Leicester presents Ariane Sherine: "Talk yourself better" Comedy writer and journalist Ariane Sherine created and organised the Atheist Bus Campaign, persuading Richard Dawkins and the British Humanist Association to support her – and buses with variations on the slogan “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life” ran in 13 countries across the globe. As a result, Ariane received an Inbox full of hate mail from Christians, which eventually led to a major nervous breakdown and suicidal ideation. She ended her journalistic career, and didn’t write again for over three years. In this talk, she will tell the full story of how therapy and medication saved her life, prompting her to write her new book, Talk Yourself Better: A Confused Person’s Guide to Therapy, Counselling and Self-Help. Ariane will also be signing copies of Talk Yourself Better after the talk. Details: http://leicester.skepticsinthepub.org/Event.aspx/22827/Talk-Yourself-Better ---- At the time of the 2011 census, Leicester Secular Society ran its own version the Atheist Bus campaign in Leicester, with the slogan "If you're not religious, for god's sake say so. In the 2011 census tick 'no religion'". There's a picture of one of the buses bearing our slogan in Leicester Secularist No. 47, January 2013, alongside an analysis of the census results ( http://www.leicestersecularsociety.org.uk/newsletter/secularist_201301_47.pdf )
