Dance, Nana, Dance
Dance, Nana, Dance September 12, 2008
--Cinco Puntos Press

Just arrived from the printer: Joe Hayes' Dance, Nana, Dance / Baila, Nana, Baila.

If you travel to Cuba, the people will greet you with a smile. Right away they’ll want you to come to their home and eat a meal. In the meal, you’ll find a mixture of food and flavors from Spain and Africa—and from many Caribbean cultures as well. In Cuban folktales, you will taste the same delicious mixture of flavors.

Storyteller Joe Hayes first visited Cuba in 2001. He fell in love with the island and its people and began to look for opportunities to meet and listen to Cuban storytellers and to share the stories he knew from the American Southwest. He has returned every year, establishing a rich cultural exchange between U.S. and Cuban storytellers. Out of that collaboration comes this savory collection of Cuban folktales, which Joe frames with an introduction and an all-important note to storytellers about each story.

Just arrived from the printer: Joe Hayes' Dance, Nana, Dance / Baila, Nana, Baila. This beautiful collection of Cuban folktales will become a classic like his others: The Day It Snowed Tortillas and Watch Out for Clever Women.
