The Great Minds Series highlights innovators and thought leaders in fields relevant to KANEKO programs. Great Minds speakers have included multi-Grammy winner Rosanne Cash, New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize winner Nicholas Kristof, scholar on the evolution of play Dr. Stuart Brown, and legendary automotive designer J Mays.

Peter Abrahams will hold the keynote lecture for the Storytelling season. Peter Abrahams is the Edgar-award winning author of thirty-five novels. Named by Stephen King as his “favorite American suspense novelist,” Abrahams is a writer of great range, his work including boundary-pushing crime novels such as Oblivion and End of Story as well as the laugh-out-loud dog-narrated and New York Times bestselling Chet and Bernie series (written under his pen name, Spencer Quinn). On NPR’s Talk of the Nation, Laura Miller called him “the best writer of psychological fiction around.”

His novel The Fan was made into a movie starring Robert De Niro. He also writes for younger readers. Down the Rabbit Hole, first book in the middle-grade Echo Falls series, won the Agatha award, and Woof, first in the ongoing Bowser and Birdie series, was a New York Times bestseller. Abrahams was born in Boston, graduated from Williams College (just barely), and lives on Cape Cod.

Abrahams’ discussion at KANEKO will explore his creative process, providing insight into the philosophy and methods of a professional storyteller.

The Great Minds Series with Peter Abrahams is a part of the Storytelling season at KANEKO June 3 – August 27. Learn more about the Storytelling exhibitions and programs HERE.
