FILM-MAKER Alom Shaha will be speaking in Cheltenham about his journey from growing up a Muslim to becoming an atheist.
Alom wrote The Young Atheist's Handbook, an account of his journey from being raised in a Bangladeshi Muslim community to becoming an outspoken atheist.
Along the way, Alom also attempts to share his ideas for how to live a good and happy life without God.
He will be giving his talk to the Cheltenham Skeptics on March 27 at the D-Fly pub in the town's Clarence Street.
As one of only a handful of high-profile public ex-Muslim atheists, Alom believes that atheism should be a way of life that should be available to all, regardless of their background.
He said The Young Atheist's Handbook was a celebration of atheism rather than an attack on religion and presented ideas from science, philosophy and theology in a way that was accessible to a wide audience.
His talk will be held from 7.30pm.
