Cuba Event Monday - 11:10-12:25 - Room VC 8-150

This is just a quick Sunday afternoon reminder of tomorrow's event on Cuba funded by Globus.

please share with interested students and faculty.

We will host Dan Erikson of the Inter-American Dialogue, author of the recent book on U.S.-Cuban relations, "The Cuba Wars: Fidel Castro, the United States, and the Next Revolution."

He will speak on his book in VC - Room 8-150.

Monday, May 4, 11:10 a.m. to 12:25 p.m.

Book description:
January 1, 2009, marks a half century for the Cubanregime created and shaped by the powerful will of Fidel Castro. Even with the ailing leader's power transferred to his brother Raul, the myth of Fidel is still at the center of the country's identity. "The Cuba Wars" explores the two crucial questions of the coming era: What does the end of Fidel's leadership mean for the future of Cuba? And what does a changing U.S. policy under the new Obama administration mean for the future of Cuba-U.S. relations?

We will also be going to lunch just after the event so let me know if you think you will be free to join us.
