Elena Schwolsky will speak about and sign her new book, Waking in Havana: A Memoir of AIDS and Healing in Cuba, on Tuesday, February 4th at 7:30pm. In 1972, Elena Schwolsky joined a work brigade in Cuba. Twenty years later, she is drawn back to this forbidden island, yearning to move out of grief following the death of her husband from an AIDS related illness and feeling burned out after spending ten years as a nurse on the frontlines of the epidemic. In Waking in Havana, she takes readers along with her into the lives of the resilient, opinionated, and passionate Cubans who help her to heal.
