The Department of English Creative Writing Lecture Series presents Margaret Randall
Acclaimed writer, poet and feminist activist Margaret Randall, reads from and discusses her memoir, My Years In Cuba. Randall, who lived in Cuba from 1968 to 1979, is the author of more than 100 books of poetry, prose, essays and photography.
Biography - Born in New York City in 1936, she has lived for extended periods in Albuquerque, New York, Seville, Mexico City, Havana, and Managua. Shorter stays in Peru and North Vietnam were also formative. In the turbulent 1960s she co-founded and co-edited EL CORNO EMPLUMADO / THE PLUMED HORN, a bilingual literary journal which for eight years published some of the most dynamic and meaningful writing of an era. From 1984 through 1994 she taught at a number of U.S. universities.
