Everybody’s getting into the Cuba act these days, and now with regulations allowing solo trips, it’s easier than ever. Tom Miller, editor of TT Cuba (back in stock!), served as the “expert” for Times Journeys, an offshoot of The New York Times, on its recent nine-day trip to Cuba. The Daily Beast chose Miller’s book Trading with the Enemy: A Yankee Travels through Castro’s Cuba as one of the five best books about the island.

Both of his Cuba books will be featured at Queen Anne Books in Seattle when Miller gives a reading and hosts a discussion about Cuba July 20. He has visited Cuba annually since 1987. Miller, whose travel books cover the American Southwest and Latin America, will be teaching a travel writing class at this summer’s Port Townsend Writers’ Conference (July 9-19).
