| PZ Myers clasps the Holy Bible as he accepts the 2009 Humanist of the Year Award|
Last weekend, over three hundred people gathered in Tempe, AZ for the 68th annual American Humanist Association conference. Speakers included Dr. PZ Myers, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Dr. Donald Johanson (discoverer of "Lucy").
August Brunsman, SSA's executive director, and Lyz Liddell, SSA's campus organizer, presented a session at the conference about making local American Humanist Association chapters welcoming to recent graduates.
Leslie Zukor, leader of the Reed Secular Alliance, blogged about her experiences in four parts. She took some really good photos!
The conference also attracted some media attention of both a serious (Phoenix Metro News and AZ Central) and whimsical nature (Phoenix New Times).
