In this immersive workshop, you will delve into the intertwined stories of two children, Celestine and Lowra, who find themselves confined within the same attic, separated by time but bound by a shared secret. Travel back to the early 1900s, where Celestine, taken from his homeland, endures life in captivity, yearning for memories of his family in Africa. Fast forward to 1974, and witness Lowra’s struggle as a young orphan trapped in the same attic, seeking solace and hope in the forgotten relics hidden beneath the floorboards.

Through interactive exercises, group discussions, and writing prompts, Lola Jaye will guide participants on a literary exploration of themes such as resilience, heritage, and the power of hidden treasures. Discover the significance of the old-fashioned pen, the porcelain doll, the beaded necklace, and the mysterious message carved on the wall in an unfamiliar language.
