The Brilliant & Forever: Kevin Macneil
3rd November - Thursday
Part of North Atlantic Cabaret #1
7pm, Thursday 3 November
The Royal Literary Fund Talk.
On an island like no other, this year, three best friends – two human, one alpaca – are chosen to compete in the annual Brilliant & Forever literary festival. A whip-cracking, energetic, laugh-out-loud satire on what we value in culture and in our lives, and a moving exploration of integrity, friendship and belonging.
Kevin MacNeil was born and raised in Lewis. A multi award-winning poet, novelist, screenwriter, playwright and editor he has written five books and edited a similar number. He is published internationally and has taught creative writing at the universities of Uppsala, Edinburgh and Kingston.
Kevin returns to Faclan with his first novel since A Method Actor’s Guide to Jeckyll & Hyde. He will be introduced by a representative from the Royal Literary Fund, who are sponsoring the event.
