Rachel Kushner’s riveting debut novel is set at a crucial moment in time—the years leading up to the Castro’s revolution—in a small, yet elite American community in  Cuba. In the Oriente Province, local sugar and nickel production are controlled by American interests. In this coming of age story, young Everly and KC observe the indulgences and betrayals of the adult world and are swept up by the revolt led by Fidel and Raúl Castro.

The group will meet Wednesday, January 13, 7-8:30 pm, 3rd Floor, Seminar Room, Main Library. Attendees have the option to read in English and/or Spanish. Discussions may also be in English and Spanish. Attendees do not have to be bilingual. Copies of Rachel Kushner’s Telex from Cuba (Spanish: Télex desde Cuba) will be held at the 2nd floor Readers Services Desk one month before the discussion. Call to register at (847) 448-8620!
