DEAD CROW & THE SPIRT ENGINE: MAKING MYTHOLOGY RELEVANT FOR THE 21ST CENTURY. 

Time & Date: ON-DEMAND

 

Join author Sean Arthur Joyce as he screens a performance video of the Prologue to his new book, Dead Crow & the Spirit Engine, followed by an interview with the author by renowned Canadian poet Tom Wayman. Too often the term ‘myth’ is mistakenly equated with ‘falsehood.’ Learn how mythology has an ancient pedigree that not only forms the basis of consciousness but also underpins all our literature and storytelling.  (Will be available On-Demand)
