Phil Cousineau: "The Painted Word: A Treasure Chest of Remarkable Words and Their Origins" 

When: Tue., Sept. 4, 7 p.m. 2012
Writer, filmmaker, teacher, editor, lecturer, and storyteller Phil Cousineau is above all things an explorer. His past books include A Seat at the Table, a collection of conversations between him, collaborator Huston Smith, and American Indian leaders; and The Art of Pilgrimage, on how to make travel sacred. His latest is The Painted Word: A Treasure Chest of Remarkable Words and Their Origins, a pilgrimage of sorts through word origins via their backstories. Cousineau unlocks the meanings of select words with his own definition, and then delves into their historical and more recent uses and meanings. At Books Inc. (1760 Fourth St., Berkeley) on Tuesday, Sept. 4. 7 p.m., free. 510-525-7777 or
