A Reading from Room in Hotel America
On May 5th, English professor Christina Milletti will read a selection from her novel-in-progress, Room in Hotel America, which investigates the lost history of a wealthy Cuban family who immigrated to the USA in 1924, then withdrew into the posh, opportunely named Hotel America. Presented as a series of documents, both real and imagined, Room’s fictional “space” offers an architecture for encountering patriarchal power—from the insularity of a single room to the realm of global politics—at a moment when relations between the US and Cuba have become increasingly fluid.
