2016: “One Book, One San Diego Selection”

The 2016 One Book One San Diego selection is 2016onebookWaiting for Snow in Havana by National Book Award-winning author, Carlos Eire.

Waiting for Snow in Havana is Carlos Eire’s beautiful, nostalgia-laced memoir of his childhood in Cuba, the country he left in 1962 at age 11. Using humor, magical realism and lyrical language, Eire paints a portrait of a childhood shattered forever by the Cuban Revolution. He was one of 14,000 Cuban children brought to the U.S. without their parents as part of Operation Peter Pan. He is now a professor of religion and history at Yale University.
