Local experts speak at Sound Off of Humanists and Freethinkers


A stellar team has been chosen for the “Sound Off” of the Humanists and Freethinkers of Fairfield County (HFFC), Nov. 9 , at 6:30 p.m. at the Silver Star Diner at 210 Connecticut Avenue in Norwalk.

Speakers for the upcoming event will include: Renee Kahn Anti-Humanism in the Current Art Scene, Richard Siddall Secular Sobriety, Cary S. Shaw The Inspiring Personal Message of Humanism, and Dr. Saúl Sibirsky My life and Free Thinking. The popular Sound Off is an opportunity for members of HFFC to give short presentations on topics of personal interest relating to humanism.

Renee Kahn is a practicing artist who works in her studio creating work that she considers part of the Humanist tradition in art, and will bring examples to illustrate her talk.

Richard Siddall will give an introduction to SMART Recovery, the leading modern alternative to old-fashioned 12-Step based addiction recovery programs like Alcoholics Anonymous, and explain why SMART Recovery should be supported.

Cary Shaw will show why Humanism is not only an intellectual view, but an empowering life affirming stance that helps people cope with adversity and deal with the vicissitudes of life.

Saúl Sibirsky, Ph.D., says that his life is predictable only at both ends of it, and the rest of it is interpreted differently by everyone who knows him.  He will present his rendition, tied to Free Thinking.  He is a Spanish-English interpreter and translator, and co-author of Language into Language. Cultural, Legal and Linguistic Issues for Interpreters and Translators.

Lisa Seidenberg, Co-Chair of Programming, and Steering Committee member of Humanists and Freethinkers of Fairfield County (HFFC), is orchestrating the event. She is an award-winning documentary film maker.

Event is free and open to the public. Food and drink are available for purchase from the Diner.
