Herb Silverman signs new autobiography, Apr. 29!

Local author and activist Herb Silverman will be at the store Sun., Apr. 29, 3-5 pm to sign his new memoir Candidate Without a Prayer.

In this revealing autobiography, Silverman takes the reader from his childhood as an Orthodox Jew in Philadelphia, where he stopped fasting on Yom Kippur to test God’s existence, to his adult life in the heart of the Bible Belt, where he became a legendary figure within America’s secular activist community. Never one to shy from controversy, Silverman relates many of his high-profile battles with the Religious Right, including his decision to run for governor of South Carolina to challenge the state’s constitutional provision that prohibited atheists from holding public office.
