In over 50 visits to Cuba Jennifer Spelman has been allowed to set complicated politics aside and instead develop friendships. Time spent with coconut farmers, ballerinas, fishermen and musicians have shaped her understanding that to be Cuban is to laugh, love and live deeply. Road trips across the island in wheezing 56 Chevy’s have taught Jennifer that Cuban’s greet adversity with ingenuity and patience. She’s grateful to call some of Havana’s best photographers and most dynamic storytellers dear friends. Their work is full of pride in being Cuban, masterfully timed, and generous with suggestions of humor and heart. Through their vivid stories Jennifer has come to appreciate the everyday maze of uncertainty Cubans gracefully navigate.

Seating is limited due to space so first come first serve I imagine. I have not limited the number of attendees. Probably best to get your ticket online though. The doors open at 6:30 PMand the lecture starts at 7:00 PM
I attended one of these speaker series last March and I loved it. I have not been able to attend any event since then however so I guess it is kinda stranger that i would hold an event but I really enjoyed the last one so i thought I would give it a shot.
