Robert Arellano, With a Special Introduction by Levi Romero
Secrets, Spies, and Spanish Rice: Six Decades of the Cuban-American Experience
Award-winning author Robert Arellano, With a Special Introduction by Levi Romero
6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
October marks the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis. For millions of Cubans exiled by the Revolution, it was the point of no return — time to settle in for a long embargado as immigrant Americanos. Join us for a multimedia presentation on la vida cubana-americana, a dance with one foot on the island and the other in the United States: three generations trying to keep in step with their cubanidad. Arellano will span six decades in 60 minutes while bringing this rich culture and complex history to life through stories, photographs, and a healthy dose of Latin jazz, offering you more than a few secretos sabrosos of the Cuban-American experience.
This is a free, ticketed event.
