Join us for an evening with Keith Bolender
who will speaking about his new book
“Cuba Under Seige: American Policy, The Revolutions, and its People.”

For more than 50 years America’s unrelenting hostility against the Cuban Revolution has resulted in the development of a siege mentality among island leadership and its citizens. This has affected politics, economics, culture, and nearly all aspects of everyday life. In a vibrant new look at Cuban-American relations,Keith Bolender analyzes, through the voices of the powerful and the common, both the positive and negative of revolutionary society constantly under pressure from the world’s greatest powers. Using both historic and current examination, including comparisons with America under siege since 9/11, the work covers the roots of besiegement, the impact it has had on the Cuban people, and how and when the besiegement will end.

Keith Bolender is a freelance journalist living in Toronto and has written extensively on Cuban matters for a variety of North American publications, including the Toronto Star, Florida Sun Sentinel, the Council for Hemispheric Affairs, the Guardian, North American Council on Latin America, Monthly Review, Progresso Weekly and others. He has been involved with Cuban projects for more than 20 years. He is a member of the Institute for Public Accuracy (IPA) on their roster of experts for Cuban Affairs. Lecturer on the Cuban Revolution at the University of Toronto School of Continuing Education.

    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic

    how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

  26. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and
    everything. However think about if you added some great graphics
    or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and
    video clips, this site could certainly be one of the greatest in its field.

    Excellent blog!

  27. I blog frequently and I truly appreciate your information. Your article has really peaked my interest. I’m going to take a note of your website and keep checking for new details about once per week. I opted in for your Feed too.

  28. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it
    was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and
    say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog
    writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for newbie blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.
