Join us as author John Hendrix comes to UCPL to celebrate the launch of his latest book, The Faithful Spy. Interweaving handwritten text and art in his signature style, The Faithful Spy tells the fascinating story of German Lutheran pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his fight against the oppression of the German people during World War II. The program is free and open to all.

Author Visit: Lorenzo Gonzalez

Wednesday, Oct. 3 at 7 p.m.
 
Join us for a visit from local author Lorenzo Gonzalez, who will discuss his autobiography, To Return to Cuba. The book traces his evolution from a teenage revolutionary through his college years in Hungary. To Return to Cuba features a rare historical perspective and first-hand description of the Bay of Pigs and Cuban Missile Crisis through his experiences as a Cuban revolutionary soldier — information completely suppressed by the Cuban government. It also details his decision to attempt a dangerous, and potentially fatal, escape to freedom. A resident of University City, Gonzalez is an instructor in the Political Science department at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, where he teaches Comparative Politics and Political Systems in South America, Central America and the Caribbean.

The Oct. 3 event is free and open to all, though English- and Spanish-language copies of To Return to Cuba will be available for purchase and signing. Refreshments will be served.
