We are delighted to have Philip Caputo as the 2019 Connecticut Book Awards keynote speaker. Mr. Caputo is an award-winning journalist – the co-winner of a Pulitzer Prize – and the author of many works of fiction and nonfiction, including A Rumor of War, one of the most highly praised books of the twentieth-century, and The Longest Road, a New York Times bestseller. His novels include Acts of Faith, The Voyage, Horn of Africa, Crossers, and Some Rise by Sin.
His current book, Hunter’s Moon, features a cast of recurring characters weaving into and out of one another’s lives: once-a-year lovers, old high school buddies on a hunting trip, a college -professor and his wayward son, a middle-aged man and his grief-stricken father. Hunter’s Moon offers and engaging, insightful look at everyday lives and offers a fresh perspective on the way men navigate in today’s world.
He and his wife, Leslie Ware, divide their time between Norwalk, Connecticut, and Patagonia, Arizona.
