Filmmaker and graphic novelist Danny Boyd joins Lewisburg Literary Festival

The Lewisburg Literary Festival is excited to present Danny Boyd as a speaker at the Lewisburg Literary Festival on Aug. 2 at 6:30 p.m. at The Literary Town Square, aka The Greenbrier Valley Visitors Center. Following the presentation, the public is invited to join Danny in a Question & Answer session and book signing.

DannyBoydFilmmaker and graphic novelist, Danny Boyd, describes himself as the guy who made it big and never left West Virginia. He lives in Charleston and came to fame in 1988 with his first feature film Chillers. Still in international video and television distribution, the horror feature was awarded the Silver Scroll for excellence from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films in Los Angeles.

Rekindling his childhood love of comic books, as he co-wrote the illustrated novel, Death Falcon Zero vs. The Zombie Slug Lords (2008), Boyd has embraced the modern graphic novel format. He sees “cinema on the page” as his current primary creative outlet. His critically acclaimed graphic novels, based on the original feature film, Chillers 1 & 2 are now out, with 3 & 4 in the planning.

Boyd’s talk is free to the public and tickets are not required. Seating is offered on a first come, first served basis.

The Lewisburg Literary Festival is a vibrant two-day event, featuring authors, outdoor art installations, musical entertainment and performance art, all inspired by literature. The festival takes place annually on the first Friday and Saturday in August. This year, the event will be held on Aug. 2 and 3.
