In Conversation: On Until We’re Fish: A Novel & Letters from Cuba
Saturday, November 20 @ 1:00 pm
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, FL 33132 United States
Susannah Rodriguez Drissi’s coming-of-age story Until We’re Fish: A Novel blends love and the romance, violence, mood, and ethos of the Cuban Revolution. It’s a gossamer tale of political defiance and hearts set adrift, and of two ordinary characters: childhood sweethearts Elio and Maria, people willing to sacrifice everything to be free. When Esther follows her father’s escape to Cuba as the situation for Jews worsens in Poland on the eve of WWII, she promises her sister to write to her sharing everything she experiences until they reunite. Letters from Cuba is based on author Ruth Behar’s family history and celebrates the resilience of the human spirit.
