Mark Kurlansky, Havana @ MPL Open Book/Open Mind



Join us for the next Open Book / Open Mind conversation
Cuba, Past and Present
Thursday, March 23, 7pm
featuring
Mark Kurlansky, author of the much anticipated Havana: A Subtropical Delirium
and Alexis Romay, Cuban-born author of Emergency Exits  and The Cuban Opening.

 

James A. Beard award winner and New York Times best-selling author Mark Kurlansky will reveal the mysterious and sometimes tangled cultural history of Cuba in his much-anticipated new book, Havana: A Subtropical Delirium
Alexis Romay, Cuban-born
 author of the novels "La apertura cubana" (The Cuban Opening) and "Salidas de emergencia" (Emergency Exits), will join Mark in conversation about Cuba’s rich five-century history of literature, architecture, food and a passionate populace. 

 

Kurlansky, prolific non-fiction author of “Cod: A Biography of the Fish that Changed the World,” has been praised for his ability to “deftly lead readers around the world and across cultures and centuries” (Library Journal), and fell in love with Havana when he first visited as a journalist in the 1980s. Havana is often thought of as a city of color and fun, and it is, but as Kurlansky says, “in Havana every splash of light has its dark spot.”

After the discussion, the authors will sign their books (we will be there!).
