In honor of No Ocean Between Us, SAMA’s Book Club will read Lion Island: Cuba’s Warrior of Words by award-winning author, Margarita Engle.

Lion Island takes place in nineteenth-century Cuba, a tumultuous time period when the country is fighting for freedom from Spain while also enforcing enslaved African and Chinese indentured servant labor. The novel follows historical figure Antonio Chuffat, a young man of African, Chinese, and Cuban-descent, who becomes a champion for civil rights through the power of his words.

Join us at our third book club to explore a slice of Cuban history through the eyes of Antonio.

Visit the Museum Shop to purchase the book. Also available online
