Donald Goodspeed, a seemingly optimistic Canadian who travels to Cuba every year to take donated goods, such as school supplies, for distribution in local churches, writing inThe Northern Light.
Welcome to the blog of my new book, Child of the Revolution: Growing up in Castro's Cuba, which is published in Australia and New Zealand by Allen & Unwin.
