We talk Cuba with Luis Gonzalez, author, PLUS Fausta Wertz on US-Latin America stories of the week

We will discuss the new "reforms" coming from Cuba PLUS US-Latin America stories with Fausta Wertz of Fausta's Blog.

Also, Luis Gonzalez will talk about his book, "Luz".

This is from his book page:

"Luis Gonzalez was born in Havana.

He spent the first seven years of his life there until his widowed mother of three fled Communist Cuba of the late 1960's.

He then found himself in Culver City, California.

Though he quickly assimilated into his new country and culture, and 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."
