I saw Ponte speak late last year at Columbia University and he has written a number of provocative pieces on new technology in Cuba. Go here for one of them.
Antonio José Ponte (Matanzas, Cuba 1964) is a poet, narrator and essayist.
Although he finished his studies in hydraulic engineering at the Universidad de La Habana, he has dedicated his life’s work to writing.
He currently lives in Madrid, where he writes for the Diario de Cuba.
He has published several works among them Las comidas profundas (Deleatur, Angers, 1997), In the cold of the Malecón & other stories (City Lights Books, San Francisco, 2000), Cuentos de todas partes del Imperio (Deleatur, Angers 2000 ), Contrabando de sombras (Mondadori, Barcelona, 2002), Un arte de hacer ruinas y otros cuentos (Fondo de Cultura Económica, México D.F., 2005) and La fiesta vigilada (Anagrama, Barcelona, 2007).
Lecture will be in Spanish
Event is free and open to the public.
