Verb Festival: My Wild Story: Selina Tusitala Marsh

10 November 2019

When I was 10 I was teased for having big hair. Not just thick hair, but wild Afakasi hair.
Selina Tusitala Marsh

Selina Tusitala Marsh’s Mophead is a story to inspire all ages. This vibrant graphic memoir reveals the artist as a young girl who embraces her difference—the heritage that gave her hair that defies gravity and signifies the untameable talent inside. Once free to be her truely wild self, the young girl soars. Marsh talks to comic artist and writer Sarah Laing (author of Let Me Be Frank and Mansfield and Me) about championing your own story and turning ugly worlds into a powerful and positive truth.

Suitable and recommended for ages ten and up.
