Donna Barba Higuera: The Last Cuentista

Free artistic storytelling with artistic means / Meet & Greet with Donna Barba Higuera

Before a comet destroys the Earth, Petra Peña reaches the life-saving spaceship. When she awakens from a deep sleep centuries later, no one but her remembers Earth. A new Collective stands above all, and demands obedience and sameness. But Petra carries the stories of the past within her and wants to ensure the survival of mankind. A powerful and captivating novel about the value of stories and individuality – and the question what it means to be human.
