Cubanabooks: Helping Women, Building Bridges
Help us bring Cuban women’s voices to the United States!! DONATE NOW!
When Barack Obama and Raul Castro made simultaneous pledges this January, to renew political ties between the United States and Cuba, the hopes and dreams of many from both countries became a reality.
- Now more than ever, we need to understand this small island nation only 90 miles from the Florida coast–before it is swallowed by the predicted deluge of US tourists.
- Now, more than ever, real Cubans want their voices to be heard–before they are drowned out and disappeared by the burgeoning tourist industry.
- Now, more than ever, Cuban women need our help to become self-supporting–before they are forced into the more lucrative and degrading professions providing access to foreign currency.
…works directly and collaboratively with real Cubans!
…provides Cuban women with dignified opportunities to grow professionally while supporting themselves and their families!
Support our efforts to build bridges and help Cuban women! Help us bring this year’s invited authors to Chico (and many major cities)– you will love Afro-Cuban poet Georgina Herrera and master of suspense María Elena Llana.
Help us bring out the next round of books, including fantastical short stories by the feisty 81 year-old Esther Díaz Llanillo, critical poetry by the often-censored Zurelys López Amaya, and a novel inspired by the author’s own experiences in mental institution–by Margarita Mateo Palmer.
Our mission can be your legacy–helping women and building bridges at this unique moment of change. Make a donation today!
