Report back from Cuba with Tony Ryan
Thursday, May 23, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Report-back (and more!!!) from the Havana International Book Fair. Join Tony Ryan, longtime bookseller and Cuba solidarity activist, for a presentation on the Havana International Book Fair and for general impressions on the situation in Cuba today.
Tony will also discuss the work of Nancy Morejón, the best known and most widely translated woman poet of post-revolutionary Cuba. Born in 1944 in Havana to a militant dock worker and a trade-unionist seamstress, Morejón graduated from Havana University, where she majored in French, and the first black woman poet to publish widely and be accepted as a professional writer, critic, and translator.
