Pick up a copy of the shocking 1992 memoir that inspired the finale of our Havana Nights film series (screening July 31) at The Wolfsonian-FIU. The Wolf Book Club will dive into Reinaldo Arenas’ stunning odyssey from his poverty-stricken childhood in rural Cuba and adolescence as a rebel fighting for Castro, through his suppression as a writer, imprisonment as a homosexual, and eventual flight from his homeland. Free for members and first-time participants. Join or RSVP by emailing bookclub@thewolf.fiu.edu.
