Fiction for Fiction day at SDSU

This year at South Dakota State University (SDSU), the Skeptics Atheists Agnostics Freethinkers and Empiricists (SAAFE) did a Fiction for Fiction campaign at their first ever fall festival booth.  21 Christian groups were represented in the festival (up 2 from last year) and for the first time the Muslim and Freethinker groups had a single presence each.

The idea is simple, turn in your religious fiction in for some fiction by better authors.

The gang hard at work

It was a huge success!  Here is the haul just halfway through the day (note the Gideons were handing out testaments just down the sidewalk):
The Spoils of the Culture Wars

I was thrilled that their first big promotional event ever was such a rounding success.  The leader of the Baptist leaning student group even stopped by to do an exchange.

SAAFE has been around for a few years now but is just now gaining momentum.  With a brand new set of great leaders and official SSA affiliation I'm looking forward to a lot of good things from them in the future.
