Cubanabooks Editor/Founder interviewed at International Book Fair

On a cold and windy morning up on the hill that overlooks Havana, at the famous fortress La Cabaña, journalist Helen H. Hormilla sat for an hour with Sara E. Cooper to discuss the objectives, trials, and triumphs of the non-profit independent press, Cubanabooks.

The resulting interview, supplemented with commentary on the Cubanabooks’ official presentation in the Salón Profesional of the Feria Internacional del Libro on Sunday, February 17, 2013, gives a broad overview of the press and its enthusiastic reception on the island.

About cubanabooks

Cubanabooks is a small independent press devoted to bringing first-class literature from Cuban women to a United States audience as well as to a global English and Spanish-speaking public. Publishing select literary gems in English or in bilingual English/Spanish volumes, Cubanabooks aims to correct the current U.S. unavailability of excellent literature from Cubans living in Cuba. At this time we prioritize the dissemination of works by living female writers who reside on the island. The founder and senior editor is Dr. Sara E. Cooper (Ph.D. University of Texas, Austin 1999), Professor of Spanish at California State University, Chico.
