The Memory of Silence: Immigrant Experience and Identity
Havana-born and Miami-based, Uva de Aragon is the first female Cuban writer living outside of Cuba who was published after the 1959 revolution. As a Cuban immigrant Ms. de Aragon depicts an interesting and unique dual perspective of the Cuban Revolution, inspired by her own personal experiences. In this presentation, she reads from her bilingual novel, “The Memory of Silence/Memoria del Silencio,” published by Cubanabooks press (http://www.csuchico.edu/cubanabooks/). The author is introduced by CSU, Chico professor Dr. Sara E. Cooper, the Editor-in-Chief of Cubanabooks.
