Book + Art: A Mash-Up for Art & Book Lovers: “Next Year in Havana”
Book + Art is a series that connects the public with reading and visual arts. For February the featured pairing is “Next Year in Havana”, by Chanel Cleeton and The Body Says, I Am a Fiesta: The Figure in Latin American Art. Cleeton’s novel tells the story of a Cuban-American woman who travels to Havana after the death of her beloved grandmother. There she discovers the roots of her identity–and a family secret hidden since the revolution. A gallery tour focusing on Latin American art follows the book discussion. Attendees may visit their local library branch to check out a copy of the book.
This event is supported in part by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant, in partnership with Friends of the Palm Beach County Public Library, Inc.
