The Porchlight: Episode Fourteen with Misha Maynerick Blaise

In this Writing Barn Words and Wine event, Program Manager Claire Campbell talks with author and illustrator Misha Maynerick Blaise about her new book, This Phenomenal Life (Lyons Press, 2017). The book explores the beauty and humor of science through surprising facts about the world around us and our connection with the universe. Misha discusses her process of making art, writers and illustrators who have influenced her and sources of inspiration.

Publishers Weekly gave This Phenomenal Life a starred review, saying the lovely graphic book “offers a sweet-spirited reminder that all human beings are more alike than different, and that the entire cosmos is interconnected in ways we’re only beginning to comprehend.”

Her next book, This is Texas, Y’all, is due from Lone Star Books in October.
