ITT’s ‘Voices From the Island’ Guest Editor on Chicago Public Radio

Zachary Gonzalez-Landis

On last Wednesday's edition of Chicago Public Radio's Worldview, Havana-born author Achy Obejas discussed the 50th Anniversary of the Cuban Revolution with host Jerome McDonnell. Obejas edited the In These Times special edition Inside Cuba: Voices From the Island, which features a series of exclusive articles and essays written by Cubans about contemporary Cuban life. Check out full audio from the program here. The WBEZ interview mentions several of the pieces from December's issue, including "From Fidel to Raul" by poet Norberto Codina, "Mystery Island" by novelist Leonardo Padura Fuentes, "We're Bad Cuz Nobody Loves Us, Nobody Loves Us Cuz We're Bad" by author and hard rock singer Yoss, and storyteller Yohamna Depestre's first work of nonfiction, "A Day in My Life (Any Day)." Achy Obejas is also a member of the In These Times Board of Editors.
