The book, "Cuba In Splinters: Eleven Stories From The New Cuba," has been translated into English by Hillary Gulley and published by O/R Books in New York. "Cuba In Splinters" includes 11 short-stories by 11 Cuban writers about their Island today.
According to Eleanor Hemsley from Sabotage Reviews, this is "a wonderful selection full of quite unique stories that together create a strong image of Cuba. Nearly all of the stories fit so perfectly together, all different but somehow right together. Cuba In Splinters is not something you find everyday." Tom Gjelten from PBS said about "Cuba In Splinters" that this book "by Cuban writers who work on the thin edge of official disapproval, recall the authenticity of Jack Kerouac and Henry Miller and vividly portray the grittiness of the Cuban experience." While Edward M. Gómez from Hyperallergic has said that "this new book calls attention to the enduring attraction of a place whose ongoing story of conquest and liberation isn’t over yet."
Following the reading of excerpts from "Cuba In Splinters," the floor will be open to Q&A about Cuban culture and realities today.
Finally there will be a book signing at Left Bank Books, free and open to the public. Although purchase is required from Left Bank Books to enter the signing line.
There will also be Cuban food and contemporary music from the Island.
