Arts & Letters by the Sea: Cristina Garcia

Sunday, September 19, 2021 @ 4:00PM - 5:30PM, Online

OMAA continues its exploration of the union between arts and letters with a third series of programs by notable authors and artists. 

Born in Havana to a Guatemalan father and Cuban mother, Cristina Garcí­a is the author of seven novels: Here in Berlin: A Novel (2017), King of Cuba (Scribner, 2013), which was adapted into a play in the summer of 2018 at Central Works Theater in Berkeley, The Lady Matador’s Hotel, (Scribner, 2010); A Handbook to Luck (Knopf, 2007); Monkey Hunting (Knopf, 2003); Agüero Sisters (Knopf, 1997), winner of the Janet Heidiger Kafka Prize; and Dreaming in Cuban (Knopf, 1992), finalist for the National Book Award. Elle Magazine called King of Cuba, ”Darkly hilarious….With a fine balance of wry absurdity and existential poignancy, García builds not just a tale of the end of days but a snapshot of the past impact and future reverberations of Cuba’s revolution—a theme more fascinating than ever as the once-isolated island nation opens itself to the world.”
