Carrie Fisher to receive Harvard Humanist Award

The Force is strong in her, even if she’s a secular humanist. Carrie Fisher, well known for many roles but none more than that of Princess Leia in the Star Wars saga, will receive the Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism from the Humanist Community at Harvard. The award, which is presented in conjunction with the Harvard Community of Humanists, Atheists, and Agnostics, will be presented on April 18 at the Memorial Church in Harvard Yard at the university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Past recipients include Salman Rushdie, Joss Whedon, and Seth MacFarlane. Tickets are expected to sell out quickly, but can be obtained via this link.
