`New Yorker': Pathfinder Is Place To Find Books On Cuba  
The following report appeared as the first item in a feature in the January 26, 1998, issue of The New Yorker magazine on places and events in New York related to Cuba.

Pathfinder Bookstore - A small, brightly lit storefront in Brooklyn offers accounts of contemporary Cuba not available in your local newspaper or your average textbook. This independent distributor sells the speeches and writings of the Revolution's leaders. Castro's 1962 manifesto "The Second Declaration of Havana" shares shelf space with Che's "Episodes of the Cuban Revolutionary War, 1956-58"; also available are copies of the Cuban Communist Party's newspaper, Granma International, and La Gaceta, a Spanish bimonthly published by Cuba's Union of Writers and Artists. "This is the place to find out what Cubans have to say about Cuba, not what other people write about it," says Ruth Robinett, who volunteers at the store. (59 Fourth Ave., at Bergen St. Brooklyn. 718-399-7257.)
