My wonder at the life of Celia Sánchez, a revolutionary Cuban woman virtually unknown to Americans, has left me almost speechless. . . . In a way it is through [her] selfless wisdom, her caring about future rebels she saw coming to the place Cuba pioneered, that we most clearly see her.” *Book signings and presentations with Nancy Stout and Consuelo Elba Álvarez * *Saturday, October 19**, 3:00 pm* Mayday Books 301 Cedar Avenue, Minneapolis *Nancy Stout* *Sunday, October 20**, 4:00 pm* Boneshaker Books 2002 23rd Avenue South, Minneapolis *Nancy Stout* *Sunday, October 20, 6:30 pm* Reception, Penthouse Party Room Marquette Place Apartments 1314 Marquette Ave. So., Minneapolis *Nancy Stout & Consuelo Elba **Á**lvarez* *Monday, Oct**ober** 21, 4:45pm* Room 250, Olin Rice Science Center Macalester College, St. Paul *Nancy Stout & Consuelo Elba **Á**lvarez* *Tuesday, October 22, 7:00 pm* Rm. 1-147, Carlson School of Mgmt. 19th Avenue and 4th Street South University of Minnesota West Bank *Nancy Stout & Consuelo Elba **Á**lvarez* *Wednesday, October 23, 4:00 pm* Coffman Union Bookstore University of Minnesota, Minneapolis *Nancy Stout* W*ednesday, October 23, 7:00 pm* Micawber's Books 2238 Carter Ave., St. Paul *Nancy Stout* All events are free and open to the public.
