Bird in a Cage

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Rebecca Roher

A poignant graphic memoir in which Roher chronicles the life and death of her beloved grandmother.

Roher’s grandmother’s life took an unexpected turn when an accident left her with a brain injury that led to early-onset dementia. An unlikely protagonist who was once a sharp, strong-willed, and independent woman, Roher’s grandma was trapped by her deteriorating mind, aging body, and the walls around her. This story illuminates the often overlooked narrative of a senior, her complicated history, and her inner life. Loveable and tragic, she is determined to get back to a familiar place—to be home again.
