learn more about Cuba

A guide by Grant (Washington)

Products sampled from this guide:
Here are a few of the books (some fictional and some nonfictional) that I've seen that pertain to Cuba and its history. There are plenty of thrillers set in Cuba on the list but I threw in some good informative reads, plus some movies and music to boot. My favorites probably are Leonardo Padura's Havana series. I have to admit, I don't know too much about Cuban music, but these couple of albums I included are pretty good. Hope you like it.
