Fidel & BCBW

Thank you very much for including information about Anita’s Revolution in B.C. BookWorld. I sent a copy of it to Fidel Castro and included a copy of B.C. BookWorld so Fidel could read the feature article about Celia Sanchez, his lover and a Cuban heroine. His office acknowledged receipt of the package, signed by Fidel himself. Also, I am thrilled to say that the Cuban Book Institute has notified me of their interest in translating Anita’s Revolution into Spanish and publishing it in Cuba in 2014. I have also been invited, and am going, to Cuba’s International Book Fair in February. So best wishes for the continuing vibrancy of B.C. BookWorld.
