Book Club - Finding Mañana: A Memoir of a Cuban Exodus

When: Tue Feb 26    
Contact: Contact Form  
Public details: For her first 16 years, Ojito was torn between loyalty to the Cuban Revolution and the desire of her parents to leave the country. At school, she learned to be a good Revolutionary child. Ideological zeal was essential when one's future was controlled by the state. The girl's parents simply wanted the state to stop interfering in their personal lives. They worked hard to obtain illegal extras–including adequate food. The book alternates between the author's memoir and the stories of others among them a Cuban American negotiating secretly for the release of Cuban political prisoners and the captain of the Mañana, which carried the Ojitos to Florida.
