ilb 2023 | Beyond Western Mythologies

Sep 11, 2023 | 09:00 PM

With Jennifer Neal and Ayanna Lloyd Banwo

Jennifer Neal’s debut novel Notes on Her Color combines Florida kitsch and magical realism in a coming-of-age story about a woman who learns to change the color of her skin. Ayanna Lloyd Banwo’s When We Were Birds, translated into German by Michaela Grabinger, tells a magical love story: Emmanuel, a young Rastafarian, works in Port Angeles, Trinidad at the cemetery, which is not only a resting place for the dead. The two young authors talk about storytelling beyond Western mythologies.
