Thank you all for having made the release of my debut novel quite a special moment in time. This Thursday, I have the last virtual event of the summer for The Playwright’s House at the fantastic Politics and Prose Bookstore. I’ll be in conversation with Cuban-American writer Achy Obejas, who has been a huge inspiration and influence for many years. Given everything that’s going in Cuba, this one feel unique and important. Please help share and come talk with us if you’re free ️
I’m so looking forward to the next summer event for The Playwright’s House. I’ll be sharing the virtual stage with the amazing Jenn De Leon and her fantastic essay collection White Space. We’ll read, we’ll converse, we’ll get serious, and we’ll goof around. Come get a dose of Latinx culture with us at the super cool Collected Works Bookstore & Coffeehouse in Santa Fe!
There are too many quotable moments to excerpt, but this review of The Playwright’s House in The Massachusetts Review got so much of the book’s intent:
“Suarez’s beautiful debut novel will leave you wanting to live in that world, hoping for a drink with these brothers and sisters, hoping for a better world, and a freer Cuba.”
I’m so excited to be bringing The Playwright’s House virtually to Seattle next week, with two really cool events.
Then, I’ll be doing an event titled “Migratory Politics: The Craft of Cultural Identity” with Kristen Millares Young and Christopher Romaguera at Hugo House on Thursday.
Both events are at 6pm PST/9pm EST. Hope to see you there!
After you’ve eaten all the hot dogs and gulped all the beer and almost drunkenly burned yourself with the fireworks this weekend, come see the amazing Marjan Kamali (her latest book, THE STATIONERY SHOP, is an absolute stunner of a novel) and me talk about THE PLAYWRIGHT’S HOUSE virtually at the Brookline Booksmith on Tuesday! I will be dropping by the store next week, so if you order from them, you’ll get a signed copy
