Truckee author, ‘The Inspirational Atheist’ to be featured Tuesday

Special to the Sun

Buzzy Jackson is a Truckee native.

The community is invted to a literary event and fundraiser on Tuesday, Feb. 10, at the Cedar House Sport Hotel, to celebrate the publication of Buzzy Jackson's new book, "The Inspirational Atheist: Wise Words on the Wonder and Meaning of Life."

Buzzy, who was raised in Truckee and is a graduate of Tahoe Truckee schools, will discuss how she came to write her third published book and what she learned in the process.

Questions and answers and a book signing will follow.

The Inspirational Atheist is a collection of uplifting quotations from some of mankind's most important philosophers, scientists, writers and comedians.

The book will be a treasured daily companion for humanists who believe that life has meaning when we live it meaningfully, independent of the existence of a higher power.

With words from Carl Sagan, Charlotte Bronte, Bertrand Russell, Joan Didion, and more on topics ranging from love and nature to wisdom and beauty, this book is a celebration of the sublime without the divine.
