Lecture: 6:30pm
Location: Richard Randall Student Center, Firesplace Lounge, 2nd floor

Inverna Lockpez, author of the highly acclaimed graphic novel, Cuba:  My Revolution, will be coming to speak at UMA on April 28th, 2014, in Richard Randall Student Center's Fireplace Lounge- 2nd floor.  This book tells the story of Lockpez’s experience during the Cuban revolution, where she trained as a medic and served at the Bay of Pigs, and later attended Art School in Havana.  The Huffington Post calls this book “beautifully written – there are scenes of alternating beauty and brutality that make it feel almost like you’re there.”  Lockpez is a painter and curator, now living in the United States.

This talk is made possible with the generosity of a Presidential Mini-Grant, UMA Student Life and Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine.
