StART a Conversation
with SAMA’s Book Club
For SAMA’s third book club, we invite you to read Lion Island: Cuba’s Warrior of Words by award-winning author Margarita Engle.
 
This short book tells the story of Antonio—a young man of African, Chinese, and Cuban descent—growing up in Cuba in the nineteenth century when the country is fighting for freedom from Spain. He becomes a champion of civil rights, determined that violence will not be the only way to gain liberty. Engle blends the story of fictional and real-life characters with beautiful free verse poetry.
 
During the book club, Lucia Abramovich, co-curator of the exhibition No Ocean Between Us, will highlight a couple of artworks featured in the exhibition in relation with the book.
 
Friday, April 2 | 6:00–7:00 p.m.
