Writer's Symposium by the Sea: Pico Iyer
Interview with writer Pico Iyer and Dr. Dean Nelson at PLNU. Pico Iyer (“Arguably the world’s greatest living travel writer,” according to Outside) is the author of over a dozen books and countless essays, and is revered as an intrepid “intellectual and spiritual adventurer” (The New Yorker). Iyer explores these two intertwined spheres—the inner and the outer—in his writings and in three recent TED Talks, which have racked up some eight million views. Iyer is the author of two novels and ten works of nonfiction, including such perennial favorites as Video Night in Kathmandu, The Lady and the Monk: Four Seasons in Kyoto, and The Global Soul. His bestselling 2008 book, The Open Road: The Global Journey of the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, was drawn from decades of talks and travels with the Tibetan leader.
