Book Launch: Dawnie Walton presents The Final Revival of Opal & Nev
In conversation with Kiley Reid
Fiction writer and journalist Dawnie Walton launches her kaleidoscopic debut novel, The Final Revival of Opal & Nev, a fictional oral history of the beloved rock ’n’ roll duo who shot to fame in 1970s New York, and the dark, fraught secret that lies at the peak of their stardom. The story is narrated by music journalist Sunny, who’s on a mission to tell the story of her idols. Sunny thought she knew most of the stories leading up to the cult duo’s most politicized chapter. But as her interviews dig deeper, a nasty new allegation from an unexpected source threatens to blow up everything. Provocative and chilling, The Final Revival of Opal & Nev features a backup chorus of unforgettable voices, a heroine the likes of which we’ve not seen in storytelling, and a daring structure, and introduces a bold new voice in contemporary fiction. Kiley Reid, bestselling author of Such a Fun Age, joins Walton in conversation at this stellar virtual book launch!
