Author, actor, and activist, Roy’s literary masterpieces intertwine with her own personal involvement in India’s political, environmental, and human right causes
As we are celebrating women this month, the Willoughby reading lists have been full of strong and well written woman, along with the families you are born into and the ones you make along the way. The books below are all about love, identity and trying to find where you belong in world that is full of many ups and downs.
It's Mother’s Day and here at Willoughby we’ve been discussing and compiling a list of our favourite mothers in literature. We asked ourselves: What makes a mother? A mother can be a guide, an emotional support, a burden, a friend, she can have a wand and tiara even. Sometimes, a mother isn’t a mother at all. Like families, mothers come in all forms and guises. Sometimes a book can feel like a mother. We may feel comforted, protected and guided by the pages of our stories.
