The Skeptic's Guide to Christmas

Ariane Sherine talks about creating the global Atheist Bus Campaign and The Atheist’s Guide To Christmas

Journalist and comedy writer Ariane Sherine talks about creating the global Atheist Bus Campaign and how it started with just 700 words on The Guardian’s website.

She’ll also talk about editing the new charity book The Atheist’s Guide To Christmas, which features 42 of the world’s most entertaining atheists, including Richard Dawkins, Charlie Brooker and Derren Brown.

Ariane Sherine is a television comedy writer, journalist and the creator of the Atheist Bus Campaign. She writes regularly for The Guardian’s Comment & Debate section, and has also contributed to The Independent, The Sunday Times, New Statesman and the NME, as well as writing for television shows including My Family (BBC1) and Countdown (Channel 4).

Ariane won a Special Award from the National Secular Society for the Atheist Bus Campaign, and was also a nominee for Secularist of the Year 2009. She was asked to give the first humanist equivalent of Thought For The Day on Radio 4 in January 2009.
