BOOK LAUNCH: IRL: Finding Realness, Meaning, and Belonging in Our Digital Lives with Chris Stedman
Tuesday November 24 | 8:00PM - 9:30PM
Join author Chris Stedman and host Anthony Oliveira to celebrate the digital launch of IRL: Finding Realness, Meaning, and Belonging in Our Digital Lives.
IRL, Chris Stedman's personal and searing exploration of authenticity in the digital age, shines a light on how age-old notions of realness--who we are and where we fit in the world--can be freshly understood in our increasingly online lives. Stedman offers a different way of seeing the supposed split between our online and offline selves: the internet and social media are new tools for understanding and expressing ourselves, and the not-always-graceful ways we use these tools can reveal new insights into far older human behaviors and desires.
Chris Stedman is a Minneapolis-based writer, speaker, teacher, and community organizer. He is the author of IRL: Finding Realness, Meaning, and Belonging in Our Digital Lives (2020) and Faitheist (2012). Chris has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, and PBS, and has written for publications including The Guardian, The Atlantic, BuzzFeed, Pitchfork, VICE, The Rumpus, The LA Review of Books, Catapult, and The Washington Post.
Previously the founding director of the Yale Humanist Community and a fellow at Yale University, Chris also served as a humanist chaplain at Harvard University. He currently teaches in the Department of Religion and Philosophy at Augsburg University and serves as the Network of ELCA Colleges and Universities' 2020-21 visiting lecturer.

Glad Day has partnered with the amazing folks at Flamingo Market to distribute
original work by queer, trans and non-binary makers and artists.
