Of Ashes and Rivers that Run to the Sea

Delivered on the banks of the Mainoru River by her two full-blood grandmothers, acclaimed author Marie Munkara was born with light skin which meant one thing – it would only be a matter of time before she would be taken by the authorities and given to a white family to be raised. With devastating honesty, humour and courage, the award-winning author will share her extraordinary journey of discovery to find her origins.
