Are you ready to rock? To swoon? To shiver, shudder, and laugh? Are you ready to feel the strains of Cuban music infiltrate your bloodstream, from the boleros of Omara Portuondo (Buena Vista Social Club) to the rap/hip-hop of Las Krudas Cubensi? How about listening to a haunting story set in Havana, or perhaps one that provokes a fit of the giggles?

Tonight–Thursday, February 9, 7:30-10 pm–the Editor-in-Chief of Cubanabooks will be the invited guest on “Face the Music,” a women’s music program on public radio station KZFR in Chico, CA, hosted by musical maven Terre Reynolds. With her collection of CDs featuring chanteuse from the island, and the three books by Cuban women that are already released or due out this year, Sara E. Cooper will offer a taste of Cuban culture to KZFR listeners. Salsa and sass will be coming your way, and call in to ask questions about women in Cuba today!
