Brighton Writers will be celebrating their first birthday soon with a very special evening with Fayette Fox, author of the critically acclaimed debut novel, The Deception Artist. Fayette will be reading excerpts from her book as well as answering your questions, so get thinking!
The Deception Artist is set in 1980s America and eight-year old Ivy has a vivid imagination; one moment she is a sea fairy riding the back of a sea horse and the next she is growing crocodile scales on her body. But she is feeling unsettled as her brother Brice is in hospital and there are tensions between her mother and father as he loses his job. Her parents may divorce and her best friend hates her, but she decides to abandon her fantasies and chooses to look at reality and uncover the truth.
This will be an intimate evening held at Temptation Café in Brighton and the licensed bar will be open serving hot and cold beverages as well as the café’s well-known mouth-watering cake. This is also a chance to meet the Brighton Writers group face-to-face (co-founded by Pretty Litter Deputy Editor, Rosie Davis) and find out more about what the group does and how it blossomed from an idea on Twitter to the fortnightly gathering it now is.
Doors open at 6.30pm, starts at 7pm.
