Brooklyn Book Festival: Virtual Festival Day
Sunday, September 25, 12:00 PM ET
Transformers
Featuring Mohsin Hamid, Monique Roffey, and Ayanna Lloyd Banwo
Moderated by Anderson Tepper

Novels of magical transformations operate on various levels, physical and metaphorical. In Mohsin Hamid’s The Last White Man, assumptions of race and identity are upended as a mysterious contagion turns white citizens brown. In Monique Roffey’s The Mermaid of Black Conch, an Indigenous Caribbean woman is turned into a mermaid—and then back again; while in Ayanna Lloyd Banwo’s When We Were Birds, humans who were once black vultures, or corbeaux, retain a special connection to the spirit world. Moderated by Anderson Tepper, co-chair, Brooklyn Book Festival’s International Committee.
