My Wild Story: Selina Tusitala Marsh

  • City Gallery, Civic Square 101 Wakefield Wellington New Zealand (map)

"When I was 10 I was teased for having big hair. Not just thick curly hair but wild Afakasi hair."

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

Suitable and recommended for ages 10 and up.
