Penn Jillette's new book

I've been asked if I could draw attention to Penn Jillette's book and some public appearances associated with it. Jillette does few performances outside of Las Vegas, so if you live in the places mentioned below this may be of special interest. I can't comment on the book itself, although the title sounds interesting: God, No! Signs You May Already be an Atheist and Other Magical Tales.

Book Passage said...

The Penn Jillette event at Book Passage, originally scheduled for August 17, has been changed. Jillette is now set to speak at the Marin County bookstore on Thursday, August 25th at 7 pm.

Jillette will be on hand to present his new book, "God, No!: Signs You May Already Be An Atheist and Other Magical Tales." Jillette - one-half of the world-famous Emmy award-winning magic duo Penn & Teller - has written a scathingly funny reinterpretation of the Ten Commandments. Included, not suprisingly, are the author's own Penn Commandments. A book signing will follow.
