“… the complex and rich humanity of non-English-speakers.”

Cecilia Rodríguez Milanés, Writer in Residence

Escribe Aquí Breakfast Arts Salon  at The Betsy

9:30 a.m. Monday, June 19
Latin American authors are often pigeonholed into writing immigrant stories or tales of their homeland meant to awe with exotic locales and customs, leaving out the complex and rich humanity of non-English-speakers. The Betsy recently received a Knight Foundation grant to combat that problem through special residencies in the hotel’s Writer’s Room for multilingual and multinational authors. This Monday’s edition of the Betsy’s Breakfast Arts Salon is part of that effort and will host Cecilia Rodríguez Milanés, a Cuban-American author of poetry and short stories and a professor at the University of Central Florida.
