Stephen Apkon is the author of the critically acclaimed book, The Age of the Image: Redefining Literacy in a World of Screens, and the Founder and Executive Director of The Jacob Burns Film Center, a non-profit film and education organization located in Pleasantville, N.Y. In The Age of the Image, Apkon draws on the history of literacy, on the science of how storytelling works on the human brain, and on the value of literacy in real-world situations. Legendary director Martin Scorsese writes in the Foreword to the book, “The Age of the Image lays out the tools we need to cultivate our awareness of and attention to every message and every gesture... It's not just a plea for literacy, but a wonderful road map and guide for how it can be taught and nurtured.”
