Katherine Stewart, author of “The Good News Club: The Christian Right’s Stealth Assault on America’s Children”, is the featured speaker at a number of AU chapter events in Southern California.
In her book, Stewart sets out on an investigative journey to uncover the effect the Good News Clubs and similar initiatives have on our schools, children, and communities. Everywhere, she discovers religion-driven programs inserting themselves into public school systems with unprecedented force and unexpected consequences. Katherine Stewart has written for in The New York Times, Reuters, and Marie Claire. She lives with her family in New York City.
