The Book Drunkard Literary Festival

This event took place on October 27, 2020 at 7pm as award-winning author Annabel Lyon shared insights from Consent just as it hit the shelves!

A smart, mysterious and heartbreaking novel centred on two sets of sisters whose lives are braided together when tragedy changes them forever. From the award-winning author of The Golden Mean.

ANNABEL LYON is the author of seven books for adults and kids, including the internationally bestselling The Golden Mean. She teaches creative writing at the University of British Columbia.

Annabel and acclaimed interviewer Bianca Marais dove into Consent just as it hit the shelves! Noted as “this generation’s answer to Alice Munro” (Vancouver Sun) Annabel delivers a sly, sensual, haunting novel about two women whose lives collide when tragedy changes them forever. It’s a startling, moving, thought-provoking story of the complexities of familial duty and on how love can become entangled with guilt, resentment and regret.


Tickets included a signed copy of Consent.
