The Blue Light Project at the Vancouver International Writers Festival
7:30 PM on Wednesday, April 6th
Alice McKay room, Central Vancouver Public Library
Incite will feature a presentation from Timothy Taylor about his new novel The Blue Light Project. Involving three days in the life of a city gripped by a hostage taking in a television studio at the center of town, The Blue Light Project is part page-turning thriller. (A bookseller who read an advance copy recently posted to her Facebook page that the book had kept her up until 4:30 in the morning!)
But the novel is more importantly about the way people source hope in troubled times. From love, certainly, which never loses its capacity to surprise. But also from art, the magical power of which retains the ability to shock us out of our routines, and inspire us to look at the future in a new way.
For this presentation, Timothy will present some of the street art images that were published in the book, discussing their influence and the stories behind them.
The evening will begin with a discussion with two very exciting new writers: Gurjinder Basran (Everything was Goodbye) and Rupinder Gill (On the Outside Looking Indian).
