Yrsa Daley-Ward : Reading & Conversation

Wednesday, June 20, 6:00pm
Mills College: Littlefield Concert Hall
5000 MacArthur Blvd
Oakland, CA 94613

Join Yrsa Daley-Ward in exploring the honest, humorous and vivid memories of her coming of age as an artist. Her prose and poetry takes us through a voyage that is brilliant and biting, raw and succulent, depicting the lush landscapes and textures of love, trauma, healing and metamorphosis.

Yrsa Daley-Ward will be discussing her new memoir, The Terrible, which explores the triumphant and tumultuous journey from girlhood to womanhood. A lyrical odyssey of the Diaspora as seen through the eyes and felt through the flesh and bone of a first generation Jamaican-Nigerian blooming in the United Kingdom.

Pegasus Books will be the onsite bookseller.
