Alan Flurry Q&A — His New Novel, Literature and the Writing Life
September 5, 2012
Cansville, by Alan Flurry, is a short novel about Toby Alameda, creative director of the Cansville Theatre in Louisville, Kentucky, as he sets about to reconstruct the story of his boyhood home and the extended family that had lived there.

Alan Flurry is an Athens, Georgia-based writer and filmmaker, television host and musician. He is currently the director of communications for the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Georgia. Producing dozens of interviews with visiting artists to the Lamar Dodd School of Art, Flurry began to blend his knack for conversation with filmmaking. In November 2011, he traveled to Venice with the ARCO Chamber Orchestra from the Hodgson School of Music to film a documentary of their performance at the opera house La Fenice. The concert was sponsored by UNESCO, as part of a wider conference on the future of the city in the context of global climate change. The one-hour documentary ARCO in Venice aired on the Georgia Public Broadcasting affiliate WUGA-TV in the fall of 2012. In June 2013, ARCO in Venice received a Merit Award from the Georgia Association of Broadcasters.
Flurry produced and directed the documentary short Art Rosenbaum, Mural in Progress, which premiered at the AthFest film festival in 2013 and Roma Amor, which premiered at the Georgia Museum of Art in 2014.
Also in the fall of 2012, Unscripted with Alan Flurry launched on WUGA-TV. Unscripted is a 30-minute interview show wherein Flurry interviews distinguished guests to Athens and the UGA campus.
