Well, now you can. For many years, people have asked our friend, the writer Tom Miller, when they could legally go to Cuba. More specifically, they were hoping he could accompany them and put together a tour focused on Havana’s literary life, including the enduring influence of José Martí.
This January, Miller will lead an entirely legal trip to Cuba, focusing on literary Havana. The group will fly out of Miami on the daily Havana charter; lodging and in-country arrangements will already be in place through the aegis of Cuba Tours and Travel.
If you or someone you know has a genuine interest in learning first-hand about literary Havana, let Miller know at tlmolinero (at) msn.com. This is not simply a sign-up-and-you’re-on-the-bus procedure. Individuals must qualify for a general license as professional researchers under the guidelines of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control. Contact Miller for details.
