Origin stories—of communities, families, individuals—can take a variety of forms and be told in multiple ways.  Kei Miller magically recounts the roots of a Jamaican hill town and the legend of its flying prophet in Augustown, while Yanick Lahens’ multi-generational Moonbath graphically reflects the upheavals of Haiti itself. Kosovan-Finish author Pajtim Statovci slyly depicts a lonely immigrant’s personal awakening in My Cat Yugoslavia. Moderated by Kaiama L. Glover (Haiti Unbound: A Spiralist Challenge to the Postcolonial Canon).
