Havana Living Today with Busboys and Poets Books
5th & K | Cullen Room | May 30, 2018 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Busboys and Poets Books as we welcome Hermes Mallea to discuss his new book "Havana Living Today." Havana is full of surprises—even for those who believe they know the city well. Architect Hermes Mallea spent several years documenting the city’s landmark historic homes and was stunned to discover that the gracious family life associated with the city’s grand houses had not disappeared with the Cuban Revolution, as was commonly believed. Beginning in 2011, he encountered stylish Havana houses brimming with personality, homes that had been created despite the island’s economic hardships and isolation. Mallea appreciated these interiors not just for their esthetic beauty, but for the way they keep Havana’s design traditions alive, making a direct connection to the style of the city before its political upheavals.
