LUISA CAMPOS National Tour!

Apr 23, 2016 by

Dear Friends,
GREAT NEWS! After much work by many of you calling your representatives and senators, Luisa Campos, Director of the Havana Literacy Museum, and her colleague historian Felipe Pérez finally received their US visas!
While Luisa sadly missed the first days of her tour, including the Days of Action Against the Blockade, she will travel to the US this weekend & be ready for all other events planned for April/May/June.
Remember that her original invitation is from Penn State in University Park from April 24 – 29 to present at an Adult Literacy Conference organized by Dr. Esther Prins and the Goodling Institute for Research in Family Literacy, which will be her first stop.
All of the following cities can confirm your events and will need to coordinate with the city before & after your city to coordinate arrival & departure travel.
Please remember that each city must purchase Luisa’s airfare from the previous city, and guarantee her food, lodging, local transportation, a respectable per diem and/or honorarium while she is with you (no set amount, but I can help you work it out depending on # of days, # of events, etc.)
Please note: Luisa will need translation at all events & host families should speak Spanish
PLEASE CHECK & CONFIRM THE DATES YOU ARE LISTED BELOW & communicate with the city contact before & after you.
