Tom Llewellyn Book Launch

10/10/2018 - 7:00pm

Join us as we celebrate the release of The Bottle Imp of Bright House, the new middle-grade novel from Tacoma's own Tom Llewellyn. Think of a wish. Go big with it. A winning lottery ticket. Eternal happiness. School vacation for a year. Now, answer this question: If you know this wish will come true, would you still make it if you knew someone else would somehow have to pay for it? That's the catch thirteen-year-old Gabe Silver faces when a mysterious millionaire sells him a bottle containing a wish-granting imp. Any time Gabe makes a wish, someone else, somewhere, is going to lose something--maybe something big. That means each of Gabe's wishes should be an ethical dilemma--but as he scores a Ferrari, a hot tub, and all the pizza and sub sandwiches a kid could want, he's certain a guilty conscience is worth it...isn't it?

Tom Llewellyn is a writer, marketer, father, and letterpress poster artist (half of Beautiful Angle) in his hometown of Tacoma, where The Bottle Imp of Bright House is set. If he were offered a bottle imp, he'd turn it down. So many of his wishes have already come true that he doesn't want to push his luck.
