Wanderland Writers Reading from Wandering in Cuba Revolution Beyond on Thursday, February 7th at 7:00 p.m.

February 7, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Linda Watanabe McFerrin and Joanna Biggars and their contributors Cyndi Goddard; Laurie McAndish King; MJ Pramik; Anne Woods; Anne Sigmonn; Tania Amochaev and Douglas Hale will be discussing their trip to Cuba and their book Wandering in Cuba: Revolution and Beyond on Thursday, February 7th at 7:00 p.m.

Once again workshop leaders Linda Watanabe McFerrin and Joanna Biggar take Wanderland Writers and head south to explore--this time to Cuba, an island country that has paid a high price for self-determination: revolution, isolation and hardship. But somehow this nation and its amazing people continue to reinvent themselves and fascinate visitors with their marvelous creativity and vitality.

Wander with the contributors from city to countryside, enjoying the history, the rhythms, the tastes, the sights, and the soul of this intriguing island nation. Everywhere, of course, they encountered its Revolution and recorded their understanding of its triumphs and failures. They met and wrote about traditional Cuba: its heroes--José Martí, Fidel, Che, Hemingway--and its enduring culture as found in food, music and its African-based religion, Santería. But they also experienced Cuba in its present reality, beyond the Revolution. They found poets, artists, filmmakers and a whole generation of young people who embrace and are shaping Cuba's future. You will meet them here.
