Event Description:
Internationally acclaimed author Roberto Fernandez will discuss the complexities of writing as a Cuban-American.
Described as a "Cuban William Burroughs" for the fantastic and surrealistic qualities of much of his fiction, Roberto Fernández is one of the most respected authors of our time, with works that have  been published in the USA, Europe, Latin America, and Cuba. His stories are particularly noted for the “collision of languages and temperaments” that are distinctive to the immigrant experience.

Fernández  is currently a teacher in the Department of Modern Languages and Linguistics at Florida State University. His works include:  La vida es un special (1982), La montaña rusa (1985), Raining Backwards (1988), Holy Radishes! (1995), En la ocho y la doce (2001).  In 2001, Dr. Fernández was named the Dorothy Lois Breen Hoffman Professor of Modern Languages and Linguistics.

The Roberto Fernández  presentations promise to be engaging and informative, offering a wonderful opportunity to better understand the inspired works from this internationally acclaimed author.
