"Waking in Havana: 

A Memoir of AIDS and Healing in Cuba"

Waking in Havana:  A Memoir of AIDS and Healing in Cuba

BROOKLYN, New York – Compelled by her anti-war work with returning Vietnam veterans and her passion for social justice, Elena Schwolsky travels to the then forbidden island of Cuba in 1972 with a brigade of youthful volunteers to help build houses for workers and support the still young Cuban Revolution; a decision that would shape her life and ultimately lead her back to Cuba twenty years later, as she shares in her beautifully narrated new book Waking in Havana: A Memoir of AIDS and Healing in Cuba (Nov. 12, 2019, She Writes Press).
