Dear Terry,

Join The Nation on January 14–21, 2017, as we travel to Cuba to experience the people, politics, culture, and history of the island in a way very few have before. We will spend our days meeting with prominent Cuban professors, government officials, physicians, community activists, farmers, urban planners, business owners, journalists, and artists. Our evenings will be filled with exclusive concerts by renowned musicians, private showings at artists' studios, and performances by students of Cuba's internationally acclaimed dance institutes.

Viñales, Cuba

We will tour museums with eminent art historians, wander through the markets of Old Havana, experience the scenic beauty of the Pinar del Río province, and savor traditional Cuban food and spirits at the island's finest restaurants and organic farms.

Throughout the week, we will be joined by Cuba expert and longtime Nation contributor Peter Kornbluh. Peter is the director of the Cuba Documentation Project at George Washington University's National Security Archive and the author of several books on Cuba, including the recently published Back Channel to Cuba: The Hidden History of Negotiations Between Washington and Havana.

While traveling in Cuba, your host will be Charles Bittner, our long-serving academic liaison who has escorted eight previous Nation trips to Cuba. Charles currently directs The Nation's cultural- and educational-exchange program, and also teaches in the sociology department at St. John's University in New York City. Additionally, we will be joined by one of Cuba's most experienced tour guides, who will accompany us throughout our journey.
