Panel Discussion – The Portable Island: Nonfiction on Cuba
With a Cuban Song in the Heart features the artwork from 280 album covers from Iván Acosta’s collection of over 5,000 long-playing discs. From unlikely images of historical newsmakers (Fidel Castro drinking a Coca-Cola on a public bus) to a roster of jet-setting celebrities, Ramiro Fernández’s Cuba Then is a welcome new edition of this seductive and lush photographic survey of the small island that continues to fascinate the world. Told in the words of the immigrants themselves, the stories in Jose Manuel Garcia’s Voices from Mariel offer an up-close view of this international crisis, the largest overseas mass migration in Latin American history.
