The Exploring Diversity Book Club is now reading Cuba, Adios: A Young Man’s Journey to Freedom, by Lorenzo Pablo Martinez, for our next meeting, Thursday July 25 at 1:30 pm. Martinez was one 14,000 Cuban children who escaped Fidel Castro’s communist regime between 1960 and 1962 as part of an airlift known as Operación Pedro Pan. This prize-winning book is a poignant and thoughtful account of one boy’s survival and self-acceptance, written with unflinching honesty and wry humor. Martinez, now a Houstonian, is a bilingual writer and composer with a doctorate in music from Columbia University. See more description and reviews at amazon.com.
