BOOK NOW

Toni Morrison once said, “If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” Our main speaker, Femi Fadugba, was so inspired by Ms Morrison’s words, that he left academia and a career in physics to learn to write the story he wanted to read. In his talk, he will describe how he infused scientific facts into his debut sci-fi novel, The Upper World, to enhance the emotional impact of the story.

As always, in addition to the main talk we’ll have sing-along songs with the Sunday Assembly Band that are out of this world! And we’ll hear poetry by Megan McKie-Smith, as well as a talk by Sunday Assembler who is “Trying Their Best”. Please stay after for tea, biscuits, and engaging conversations with members of our community.

This will be a hybrid event, which means it will be held in-person as well as live-streamed through our website, https://www.sundayassembly.com. We will make a Zoom room available for livestreamers after the assembly has finished. Link to be shared on the day.

Our assemblies are free to attend, but we kindly request that you support us so we can continue to keep it open to those who cannot afford to contribute. https://sundayassembly.enthuse.com/donate-oneoff#!/
