Our Woman in Havana by Ambassador Huddleston - The Last Bookstore - Los Angeles, CA

The Last Bookstore is pleased to present State Department veteran and longtime Cuba specialist, Ambassador Vicki Huddleston, our top diplomat in Havana under Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush. She will discuss her new book, OUR WOMAN IN HAVANA, which chronicles the past several decades of US-Cuba relations from a bird’s-eye view.

The essential book about Cuba by America’s most seasoned diplomat to the region— rushed to publication just before Raúl Castro’s scheduled retirement in April 2018.

Vicki Huddleston served under Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush as Chief of the US Interests Section in Havana, and earlier under President George H.W. Bush in charge of US policy toward Cuba at the State Department. She also served as US Ambassador to Madagascar and to Mali and was the principal adviser on Africa to the Secretary of Defense. She is co-author of a report for the Brookings Institution that was a blueprint for President Obama’s diplomatic opening with Raúl Castro in 2014. She has written opinion pieces in The New York Times, The Miami Herald, and The Washington Post. Ambassador Huddleston lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Please note that the store has limited capacity (a mere 300!), so get there early.
