Our next event will be BookTalk with a twist! We are pleased to welcome Tyler and Jonathan Keevil to celebrate the UK launch of Tyler’s latest novel, No Good Brother – a rip-roaring tale of ‘loyalty, love, danger and family’ (HarperCollins, 2018).
Tyler Keevil is an award-winning writer from Vancouver who now lives in Wales and teaches in the creative writing program at Cardiff University; his brother Jonathan Keevil is a musician and filmmaker who composed the soundtrack for the indie film Bellflower, an official selection at the Sundance Film Festival.
BookTalk will host an evening with the two brothers blending music, readings, and discussion of No Good Brother‘s creation – the last stop on a rollicking and entertaining literary roadshow that has taken the Keevils all over the UK.
The event will be held at 7pm on Wednesday 25 April at Cardiff University’s School of Optometry and Vision Sciences, Maindy Road, Cardiff. Tickets are free and all are welcome – but they’re going fast, so make sure to book yours now through Eventbrite!
To make the most of the session, you may like to read No Good Brother beforehand. The main event will be preceded by a reception with tea, coffee, and biscuits in the foyer of the Optometry building.
