What have we been doing at True North House Publishing & Productions? We’ve been busy!
We are working on a book about Cuba. This is a fascinating read, written by a Cuban refugee who was born the same year that Fidel Castro and his revolution took over Cuba. Maria and her mother came to the United States when she was 11 years old, via the Freedom Flights. We are learning what living in Cuba was like for them. And what it was like to come to a new country, leaving behind family and friends – and how they survived. It’s truly an insider’s look at Cuba and the unique challenges of the Cuban people.
The woman behind the story, Maria Fernandez, is an amazing, very loving, very spiritual human being. Watch for the book to come out early summer. You can find her on Twitter: @MariaRastaluv

Our own Michelle Wright, the wonderful photographer behind the book, The Magic Of Mandela, and Avril Guthrie, who compiled and edited the book, got to meet each other in person recently. It was very exciting to see the two come together when Avril visited South Africa for her mother’s 90th birthday. The internet is fantastic to connect and work with people from all parts of the world, but a hug is always best!
