Gilder Lehrman Book Breaks features the most exciting history scholars in America discussing their books with host Gena Oppenheim live, followed by a Q&A with home audiences.
Join us online on Sunday, September 12 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. ET (11: 00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PT) with Ada Ferrer, as she discusses her book "Cuba: An American History."
Spanning more than five centuries, "Cuba: An American History" is an ambitious and moving chronicle of the country's history and its relationship with the United States. Drawing on more than thirty years of research—as well as her own extensive travel to the island over the same period—Ferrer examines and reveals the evolution of modern Cuba, documenting not only the influence of the United States on the island but also the many ways Cuba has been a recurring presence in US affairs. Filled with rousing stories and characters, this is a book that will give American readers unexpected insights into the history of their own country and, in so doing, offer a way to imagine a new relationship with Cuba.
