Dreaming in Cuban

Who: Cristina Garcia

Why: A wonderful, beautiful book about Cuban women and how they responded to Castro’s revolution. Celia is a treat, guarding the coast of Cuba. Her daughters have their own ideas. Old ideas clash with new, but in a good way. Read if you’re an activist who would like to see Cuba opened to U.S. tourists. Or if you’re a mom struggling with a relationship with your daughter.

When: If you ever get to Cuba, read it there. If not, just read it.
