Elena Schwolsky - Waking in Havana

A Memoir of AIDS and Healing in Cuba, a Book Talk & Signing

In 1972, Elena Schwolsky made a decision that changed her life: she joined hundreds of other young Americans on a work brigade in Cuba. Twenty years later, she is drawn back to this forbidden island, yearning to move out of grief following the death of her husband from AIDS and feeling burned out after spending ten years as a nurse on the frontlines of the epidemic.
