The Center for Fiction and the Brooklyn Caribbean Literary Festival welcome playwright and author Cristina García (Monkey Hunting, The Aguero Sisters) for the launch of Vanishing Maps, a sequel to her debut novel, Dreaming in Cuban. Set twenty years after the events in Dreaming in Cuban, García’s new novel tracks four generations of the del Pino family against the tumultuous backdrops of Cuba, the U.S., Germany, and Russia. Cut off from their Cuban roots but still feeling the island’s pull, the family grapples with their histories over a momentous year before they meet in Berlin for an explosive reunion. García will be joined by fellow Cuban author Ernesto Mestre-Reed (Sacrificio) for a discussion about the process of crafting complex characters and weaving together multigenerational narratives as well as the novel’s rich themes of family, devotion, and the timeless search for home. During an extended Q&A, the audience will have the chance to engage in this discussion about identity, belonging, and the writing process.

Presented in partnership with the Brooklyn Caribbean Literary Festival.
