PALM TREES IN THE SNOW by Gloria Maria Strassburger 5/27/2014

bookcover

Gloria Maria Strassburger

Co Host: Fernan Hernandez, author of The Cubans: Our Legacy in the United States: A collective biography

In the author’s words:

Havana, 1939—The glamorous capital city of an alluring Caribbean island, the year that Rolando Fernández and Ninina Perea meet and fall in love. Strassburger begins her story with her parents’ courtship in the golden years of pre-Castro Cuba. Her memoir recounts how her father’s mental collapse and the communist revolution of 1959 uprooted her privileged childhood, both physically and emotionally.

While providing substantial background on Fidel Castro’s political revolt, Strassburger focuses on her family’s experiences: The appropriation of their wealth and properties by the rebel regime. How families were torn apart as children were taken from their parents, forced to undergo communist indoctrination in Russia. Strassburger narrowly escaped such a fate through Operation Peter Pan, one of the largest political exoduses of children in history. Fearing for her future, her parents sent her out of Cuba—alone—in 1961. She relates the terror of being separated from her family and living in a foreign country without them.

With affecting detail, Strassburger depicts her family’s disintegration as her father spiraled into schizophrenia and communism forced them into exile. They left behind their loved ones, their homes, and their identities to face the hardships of a new life in the United States. Palm Trees in the Snow is a family’s story of love, sacrifice, and survival. It is the author’s tribute to a way of life lost forever and the embracing of a new one in America.

BIOGRAPHY WITH AUTHOR LUIS GONZALEZ 5/22/2014

Luis

Luis Gonzalez

Luis Gonzalez grew up in Culver City, California after his widowed mother of three fled Communist Cuba in the late 1960’s. Though he quickly assimilated into his new country and culture, and though he had no trouble mastering his new language, Cuba never left him. Cuba was always with him: inside him, driving him, calling him. He realized this more than ever when, in the 6th grade, he did his country report on Cuba and thus began a love affair with his homeland that continues to this day. It was only natural that Cuba should play a part in his writing, and even from grammar school age, Luis Gonzalez knew that writing was in his blood.

“I always loved to write, even as a young child, I guess I’ve always been an indie author because when I was in the third grade, after only having been in this country a couple of years, I wrote two stories. One was called The Magic Slippers, the other “The Dolphins.” I took sheets of paper that I folded over and stapled and not only did I write the stories, but I illustrated them and made the cover and everything for them. I still have these two first books of mine and I look back on them now and wonder, wow, I really always was a writer. To this day those two items remain some of my most treasured possessions for they provide a glimpse into the passion that helped shape the person that I am, and if I’m anything, I’m passionate, and if I’m passionate about anything, it’s writing.”

As someone who is deeply moved and inspired by politics and religion and the arts, it was no wonder that he came up with the idea for his novel, Luz, a story that grapples with all three realms. These days Luis Gonzalez calls San Francisco home where he lives with his wife and two of four daughters.

Huber Matos-The struggle continues, long live a free Cuba 3/13/2014

Huber Matos

Huber Matos

Huber Matos (26 November 1918 – 27 February 2014) was a Cuban dissident activist and writer. Previously, he had been a revolutionary who assisted Fidel Castro, Che Guevara and other members of the 26th of July Movement (M-26-7) in successfully overthrowing the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista as part of the Cuban Revolution. Matos had opposed Batista since the general’s effective coup in 1952, which he regarded as unconstitutional, but became increasingly critical of the movement’s shift towards Marxist principles, and closening ties with leaders of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC). Convicted of “treason and sedition” by the new Castro regime, he would spend 20 years in prison (1959–1979) before being released in 1979.

Celebrating Life in Union, narrated by Andy Garcia is a one-hour documentary about a group of cuban former political prisoners who fought with Fidel Castro, and later after Huber Matos, the third high ranking officer of the Fidel Castro revolution resigned, these men fought against Fidel Castro and were jailed, abuse and tortured. 

Producer of Celebrating Life in Union, Gladys Bensimon shares the similarities of what occured in Cuba 1959 and the atrocieties the Venezuelan people are undergoing right now.
