Mia Leonin’s HAVANA & OTHER MISSING FATHERS, a memoir about one woman’s search for her Cuban father.
Just met Mia this weekend at an event at the University of Miami, where she teaches. Lovely lady! Can’t wait to read this book.
I found my own voice as an author after reading this book. Dreaming in Cuban gave me permission in some ways to write about the place I come from (Miami), and the people who loved me and whom I loved (my Cuban family) and the island I’ve never seen but feel in my heart.
