World travel highlighted in free summer talks at the Hyannis Library!

There is only 90 miles between the United States and Cuba, but visiting the largest island in the Caribbean has been banned for U.S. citizens for many years.  Recently,
however, educational visits have been permitted.  Kat Szmit traveled to Havana, Cuba in April 2014 with a group of Barnstable High School students and teachers on a cultural exchange that became a transformative adventure.

Discover “Beautiful Cuba!” at the Hyannis Public Library on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at 6 p. m. as Ms. Szmit shares her experiences with the people, the land – including the language, art, music, and food of the “The Pearl of the Antilles!”  This talk is free and open to the public.

Kat Szmit is the Senior Reporter at the Barnstable Patriot in Hyannis, where she has worked for more than eight years covering sports, education, senior citizens issues, and whatever else finds its way to her desk.

After the talk, stroll over to the Hyannis Village Green at 7 p. m. for a free concert by the Barnstable Town Band.
