*Margaret Randall, Poet, Writer, Photographer, Political Activist Twin Cities metro area tour March 3-5, 2011* Margaret Randall’s works are well known to many Minnesotans. For many years she lived in Mexico, where she co-founded and co-edited El Corno Emplumado/The Plumed Horn, a bilingual literary journal, and in Cuba and Nicaragua, where she raised four children, wrote, conducted and published extensive interviews with Cuban and Nicaraguan women, worked in writing workshops, and edited collections of Cuban and Nicaraguan poetry. Upon her return to the U.S. in 1984, the government ordered her deported because of opinions expressed in some of her books. After an almost five-year battle, her citizenship was reinstated. She has published more than than 80 books including works about Cuba and Nicaragua as well as volumes of poetry and essays.
