CasaCuba and Books & Books: Contemporary Cuban Literature Circle June Meeting

This is a past event.

Tuesday, June 25 at 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave, Coral Gables, Florida 33134

Join CasaCuba and Books & Books for the this meeting of the Contemporary Cuban Literature Circle. 

About the book:
Memory Mambo describes the life of Juani Casas, a 25-year-old Cuban-born American lesbian who manages her family's laundromat in Chicago while trying to cope with family, work, love, sex, and the weirdness of North American culture. Achy Obejas's writing is sharp and mordantly funny. She understands perfectly how the romance of exile—from a homeland as well as from heterosexuality—and the mundane reality of everyday life balance one another. Memory Mambo is ultimately very moving in its depiction of what it means to find a new and finally safe sense of home.

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet fellow readers and delve into the literary world of contemporary Cuban literature! This event is free and open to the public.
