HAVANA TIMES – On October 28, author Margaret Randall is inviting our readers to attend an event featuring her archives and memoir: “I Never Left Home: Poet Feminist, Revolutionary”. The happening includes an extensive conversation between Randall and Nicaraguan author Gioconda Belli.  

Here’s a personal invitation from Randall and flyers about both the discussion on her archives and memoirs and the public conversation with Gioconda Belli.


I invite you to a virtual event that will take place on October 28th at 2 p.m. MDT*. The first part will be a panel of experts who will speak about my archives held by the University of New Mexico’s special collections library. The second part will be a public conversation between Gioconda Belli and myself. She will interview me about my memoir, I NEVER LEFT HOME: POET, FEMINIST, REVOLUTIONARY, published by Duke University Press in March.

Gioconda and I will also speak about what it was like for two strong women working in revolutionary movements led by misogynist men. The conversation will be in English with Spanish subtitles. I hope you will attend. To do so, you must register at the link that appears in these flyers.
