At our February meeting, we will discuss Carlos Eire’s “Waiting for Snow in Havana: Confessions of a Cuban Boy.” At the start of the nineteen-sixties, an operation called Pedro Pan flew more than fourteen thousand Cuban children out of the country, without their parents, and deposited them in Miami. Eire, now a professor of history and religion at Yale, was one of them. His deeply moving memoir describes his life before Castro, among the aristocracy of old Cuba—his father, a judge, believed himself to be the reincarnation of Louis XVI—and, later, in America, where he turned from a child of privilege into a Lost Boy. Brown bag lunch, followed by discussion. Copies of the book may be checked out from the First UU Church library.
