A Meet the Author Event

Who: Chris Hedges, Senior Fellow, Nation Institute

Event: In his new book, I Don’t Believe in Atheists, Chris Hedges explores the extreme sides of the religious spectrum, establishing himself as a voice of nuance, tolerance and moderation in the debate about religion and faith in America. Hedges believes that religion, at its best, struggles with the transcendent forces in life and seeks to promote an ethic of compassion and justice, yet exposed to the idea that religion has been distorted, especially by fundamentalists, to promote intolerance, exclusion and violence. Hedges was a foreign correspondent for nearly two decades for The New York Times and graduated from seminary at Harvard Divinity School.
