In his memoir Saga Boy: My Life of Blackness and Becoming, Antonio Michael Downing (Trinidad) traces the arc, through loss and displacement, of his search for identity, from a boy in a tiny village in the tropical forests of Trinidad raised by his religious grandmother, to becoming a “Saga Boy” – a West Indian playboy archetype – living in Canada. As a 14-year-old, Marlon Peterson (Trinidad) suffered terrible violence. At 19 he was involved in a violent crime himself and served seven years in prison as a result. His memoir, Bird Uncaged: An Abolitionist’s Freedom Song, demands a shift from punishment to healing, an end to prisons, and a new vision of justice.  Moderated by author M.J. Fievre, ReadCaribbean coordinator. In English.
