"Yankee Come Home," an exploration of Cuba with local author William Craig

09/20/2012 7:00 pm

Thursday September 20th, 2012, 7 p.m.

Local author William Craig brings us a beautiful book, Yankee Come Home. This book combines travelogue, memoir and history to connect the lost legacy of America's 1898 invasion of Cuba -- the campaign we call the "Spanish-American War," as if the Cubans didn't fought for their freedom -- with its traces in Cuba's landscape and culture today.

After a long sojourn as reviewer, feature editor and editorialist for The Valley News, William is a professor in the Community College system of New Hampshire.  He was the founder of the Meetinghouse Readings in Canaan, NH and directed the series for a quarter-century. 

William will be enriching his presentation and reading with Cuban photos and music.

"Rarely is a first novel as smart and engaging and learned and funny and moving as The Borrower." —Richard Russo
