This fall, Sam Harris will stage a series of live events—in Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco—to coincide with the publication of his new book, Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion. Each event will be held in a state-of-the-art theater and consist of a lecture and extensive Q&A. Everything will be recorded, and the footage will be edited and combined with supporting material to produce an online course. All attendees will receive a special edition of Waking Up, a signed bookplate, a download of the unabridged audio book, and full access to the online course. A catered cocktail reception will follow each talk.
