Special Evening with Rosa Jordan,
Author of the Novel: "The Woman She Was"

Friday April 26th at 7pm
Joe’s Café ~ Large North Hall
1150 Commercial Dr. (at William St.)
Vancouver, Canada

 

Join Vancouver Communities in Solidarity with Cuba (VCSC) to welcome distinguished novelist and travel writer Rosa Jordan to Vancouver. Rosa, who lives in the interior of BC, is coming to present her new book “The Woman She Was,” a novel of love, revolution and history, set in today’s revolutionary Cuba.

About The Woman She Was:

The “Woman She Was” tells of 35-year-old Celia Cantú, a Cuban paediatrician whose day-to-day life is unremarkable—or so it seems on the surface. She lives in a somewhat rundown apartment in East Havana and is engaged to Luis Lago, a high-level member of the Cuban government she has known since childhood. She enjoys her work and adores Liliana, the 16-year-old niece she is raising. But three things are about to shatter the serene surface of her life.

Celia begins to have hallucinations wherein, for a few seconds at a time, she feels as if she is not herself but Celia Sánchez, the revolutionary heroine for whom she was named. She considers these mental aberrations abnormal but hesitates to seek psychiatric help. Instead, she decides to visit the historic headquarters of the Cuban revolutionary army where Celia Sánchez lived (with Fidel Castro) during the war. Celia Cantú reaches La Comandancia, high in the Sierra Maestra mountains, where she has an encounter with a man that deepens her doubts about her own sanity.

Wife of Cuban 5 & Cuban Ambassador to Canada visit Vancouver Print E-mail

 

A special evening organized by United Steelworkers featuring...

ADRIANA PÉREZ,
Wife of Gerardo Hernández one of the Cuban 5 held in U .S. jails

HIS EXCELLENCY MR. JULIO GARMENDÍA PEÑA,
Cuban Ambassador to Canada

 

MONDAY APRIL 15, 2013 at 6:00pm

“Stanley Park Ballroom”

Westin Bayshore Hotel

1601 Bayshore Drive

Downtown Vancouver, Canada


Please join us in welcoming two honoured guests to Vancouver, Canada, Adriana Pérez and Mr. Julio Garmendía Peña. Adriana Pérez is the wife of Gerardo Hernández, one of the Cuban 5. Gerardo is currently serving two life sentences plus 15 years in a United States jail accused of "conspiracy to commit espionage" and "conspiracy to commit murder". However, Gerardo's mission in the United States was only to protect his country, Cuba, against a vicious campaign of terrorism coming out of Miami since 1959 that has led to over 3,400 deaths in Cuba.

Adriana has been married to Gerardo since 1988, but he has spent the last 14 years of their marriage in a U.S. jail cell. In those 14 years, Adriana has repeatedly been denied entry to the United States and has not been able to visit her husband. Yet, with courage and determination, she and the families of the Cuban 5 have been speaking out to defend their innocent loved ones and demand their freedom.

On Monday April 15, we invite you to come and hear directly from Adriana about the case of the Cuban 5. We will also be honoured by the presences of Mr. Julio Garmendía Peña, Cuban Ambassador to Canada, who will share his perspectives on this important case for the Cuban government and people.
