A man decides he’ll save his failing New York restaurant by traveling to Cuba to reclaim a legendary chicken recipe stolen from his family by Fidel Castro in Phillippe Diederich’s debut novel Sofrito. Fatima Shaik has written a love letter to the entertaining, unpredictable, and flawed characters who populated New Orleans before Hurricane Katrina in What Went Missing and What Got Found, a lyrical short story collection with undertones of the blues. In her novel, Almost Crimson, Dasha Kelly portrays a young woman’s struggle to break free from the grips of codependency and poverty to find confidence and success in her career and her personal life. Multidisciplinary writer and artist Vanessa Garcia’s novel White Light is the story of an artist torn between the need to mourn her father and the chance to break into the art world.
