Join us for a reading and reception with award-winning writer and filmmaker, teacher and editor, lecturer, and travel leader, storyteller and TV host, Phil Cousineau. Cousineau will read and discuss his work in a lively and engaging conversation.
As the Nance Writer-in-Residence, Cousineau will reside for four weeks at the historic home of author, humorist and New Yorker cartoonist James Thurber and receive a $5,000 stipend. He will begin his residency in November 2019.
About Phil Cousineau
Phil Cousineau is an award-winning writer and filmmaker, teacher and editor, lecturer, and travel leader, storyteller and TV host. His fascination with the art, literature, and history of culture has taken him from Michigan to Marrakesh, Iceland to the Amazon, in a worldwide search for what the ancients called the “soul of the world.” With more than 35 books and 15 scriptwriting credits to his name, the “omnipresent influence of myth in modern life” is a thread that runs through all of his work. His books include Stoking the Creative Fires, Once and Future Myths, The Art of Pilgrimage, The Hero's Journey, Wordcatcher, The Painted Word, The Oldest Story in the World, The Book of Roads, and The Accidental Aphorist.
