The TradeWaiters 27: “Aya” by Marguerite Abouet and Clément Oubrerie

On today’s Tradewaiters we read Aya written by Marguerite Abouet and drawn by Clément Oubrerie. Special guest Jess Pollard joins us again while Angela is away. Our first formal foray into bande dessinée, Aya follows the chaotic love lives of three young women in 1970s Ivory Coast. This book was a lot of fun! Join us as we share our thoughts.
