UU Humanism is alive and well in the Midwest! Jack Reich and Roger Brewin have been crisscrossing Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin - by mid May they will have run ten information tables this spring at UU churches and District Annual Meetings (Heartland and Central Midwest). The reaction to the combination of HUUmanist eye candy (buttons, magnets, books, etc) and social justice work (see article on "Ribbons Not Walls") has been encouraging. Hundreds of people have made small purchases or donations, dozens have joined HUU or signed up to financially sponsor one of our projects. Bill Murry's book "Becoming More Fully Human" sells steadily, and conversation is constant about the need for more humanist resources and presence in local congregations.

Becoming More Fully Human as eBook
Bill Murry’s book Becoming More Fully Human: Religious Humanism as a Way of Life, published in 2011, is building an ever wider following and is now available in digital form by arrangement with the Humanist Press (American Humanist Association). The web site is www.humanistpress.com.
Our next volume, Mike Werner’s Regaining Balance: The Evolution of the UUA, is currently in preparation for the press, and we expect to have copies for display at our exhibit booth at the coming General Assembly. It’s the first in a projected series entitled “Voices of Diversity,” intended to call forth much-needed conversations about issues too often ignored, or possibly even thought by some to be too controversial for open discussion.
