Brian Conaghan joins us for an Authors Live event focusing on his novel Cardboard Cowboys. Full of heart and Brian's trademark humour, Cardboard Cowboys is a poignant and life-affirming story that follows an unlikely friendship between a young bullied teen and a man who lives in a cardboard house. In this event, Brian discusses his writing and the novel's key themes of body image, bullying, and friendship. We also learn about the haikus in the book, and get top tips from Brian on how to write your own haikus.
