Cuba ‘country of honor’ at Haiti book fair
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Socialist workers from the United States and Canada have arrived here to participate in the Dec. 11-14 Second International Book Fair in Haiti. Team members will be promoting Pathfinder books and the Militant newspaper and reporting on political developments in the country.
Cuba, which has maintained nearly two decades of extensive medical, education and other campaigns of solidarity with Haiti, is the country of honor. A dozen Cuban publishers, writers and filmmakers have arrived, led by Zuleica Romay Guerra, director of the Cuban Book Institute. Above, part of the Cuban delegation meeting with Jean Mathiot (at left), official of the French Institute of Haiti, which is helping prepare activities during the fair.
Militant readers can contribute to the success of this trip. Send checks to the Militant at 306 West 37th St., 13th Floor, New York, NY 10018.
