Description

Join us for an evening with local author, Yvonne Brissett, as she launches her debut novel The Sweetest Sound. Yvonne will be interviewed by journalist, broadcaster & academic, Marverine Cole.

Yvonne Brissett is a news and current affairs journalist at the BBC. A graduate of the University of Birmingham, she holds a degree in Media, Culture and Society. Co-editor of the award-winning anthology, Whispers in the Walls, Yvonne has also written, produced and directed a short film, The Darkest Hour. Other credits include her short film, The Simple Truth, and the anthology, Original Skin, which features her story, Mango. Yvonne has received awards from Arts Council England, and has had work broadcast on BBC Radio 4. Her work has taken her to Hollywood and New York. Born in Gloucester, UK, to Jamaican parents, The Sweetest Sound is her first novel.

Single, sexy, Sahai Martini is a natural born flirt and bona fide gold-digger. This scandalous chick is determined to enjoy a life of luxury at some wealthy man’s expense. As a television producer for a struggling urban entertainment station, she is under pressure to come up with an original idea to restore ratings, save the station and possibly her job. Combining her gold-digger interests with her love of urban music, she creates a killer idea for a hot new reality dating show, but is her personal life quite as thrilling? Can she find Mr Right or will her outrageous ways get the better of her?

In this sparkling, contemporary debut, Yvonne Brissett takes us on the fresh, vibrant, edgy journey, of a young woman looking for love in all the wrong places.

This event is free, but you must book a place online for this popular, local launch.
