Ayanna Lloyd Banwo talks to Monique Roffey

10@10 Debuts: When We Were Birds

 
Hay Festival 2022 , 

A love story and a ghost story set in modern day Trinidad, this debut work is rich with magic and wisdom, alive with a fresh, modern sensibility. The author weaves a story of loss and renewal, darkness and light; a triumphant reckoning with a grief that runs back generations and a defiant, joyful affirmation of hope. Ayanna Lloyd Banwo talks to Trinidadian-born British writer and memoirist Monique Roffey.
