Please come to Club Quarters Feb. 3 to share lunch and stories with two journalists who interviewed Fidel Castro and Che Guevara in their early years.

More Information

Karl Meyer, who served on the editorial boards of The New York Times and The Washington Post, was one of the first American journalists to spend time with Castro in the mountains of the Sierra Maestra two-thirds of a century ago. Henry Raymont accompanied Vice-President Richard M. Nixon on a month-long trip to Cuba, Mexico and Central America in 1955 for UP, and interviewed Castro eight times over the course of his career. David Andelman, formerly of The New York Times and World Policy Journal, will moderate.
