Grey Havens Group Staff
Kelly Cowling, Founder and Executive Director
Kelly Cowling is the founder of The Grey Havens Group. She has a Master’s degree in Religious Studies from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. She is particularly interested in the ways philosophy and literature can be approached as contemplative practice. She started what is now Grey Havens Group, Inc. as a small book group for fans of fantasy literature but quickly discovered that talking and thinking deeply about books and big ideas has the power to improve the lives of individuals, families, and our community!
Cowling lives in Longmont, Colorado with her loving family that includes Brontë, a dog with a literary name who loves getting her tummy rubbed during philosophy discussions.
Robyn Bosica, Deputy Director
Robyn Bosica works alongside Kelly to plan events, facilitate discussions, and moderate the Group’s internet presence. She also plays an active part in running our young adult branch, and she has been working with young adults in community events, theater programs, and service trips since 2008. She is thrilled to be a part of a group as awesome and intergenerational as Grey Havens!
Bosica holds a Bachelor’s degree in English and Writing from Towson University in Baltimore, Maryland. Her particular interests include creative nonfiction, science fiction, and the intermingling of literature and identity. She is the recipient of the City of Longmont’s 2014 “Make Time for Kids Award” for her work with Grey Havens YA.
Rebecca Perry, Office Elf
Rebecca is a long-time Tolkien fanatic and all-around nerd. Her hobbies include sewing historical, steampunk, and fantasy clothes, knitting, reading, going to conventions, cooking hobbit food, watching geeky TV and movies, and sharing it all with her teen-aged kids. Her day job may be kind of boring, but it has taught her lots of useful skills, which she shares with us in her role as volunteer office elf.
The Grey Havens Group thrives only because of the commitment and enthusiasm of all of our volunteers. Are you interested in helping out in the office, helping with a special event, or helping with book discussions for children, teens, or adults?
