Six Bridges Book Festival: Byron Lane & Steven Rowley
Byron Lane is an author, playwright, and screenwriter whose debut novel, A Star is Bored, inspired by his time as assistant to actress Carrie Fisher, was hailed by the New York Times Book Review as “wildly funny.” He lives in Palm Springs, California, with his husband, author Steven Rowley (who shares this session at the Fest, talking about his book The Celebrants), and their rescue dogs. In Lane’s Big Gay Wedding, a conservative mother runs a rescue ranch for misfit animals in rural Louisiana and clashes with her gay son when he wants to have a grand wedding on the family farm.
Written with humor and heart, Rowley’s The Celebrants is a moving tale about the false invincibility of youth and the beautiful ways in which friendship helps us celebrate our lives, even amid the deepest challenges of living.
