On July 20, the Menlo Park Main Library invites people to get a feel for the changing face of Cuba, during a special lecture and slide show by Foothill College photography professor and seasoned Cuba traveler Ron Herman.
The island nation of Cuba, with its Spanish colonial architecture and cobblestone streets filled with classic American cars, has appeared frozen in time since 1959. During his slide lecture, Herman will discuss the changes taking place on the island since President Obama’s historic announcement to restore diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Cuba.
Ron Herman is an award-winning educator and photographer, and Chair of the Photography Department at Foothill College, located in Los Altos Hills. Herman has taught internationally, and his personal travels have taken him to 22 different countries covering four continents. He believes in the importance of experiencing life as a foreigner and using these unique opportunities to learn about other cultures, the world, and our place in it.
No preregistration is necessary to attend this free event, which is funded by the Friends of the Menlo Park Library. Beverages will be provided. The event will take place at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, July 20th at the Menlo Park Main Library, located at 800 Alma Street.
