Writers LIVE: Tom Hayden, Listen, Yankee! Why Cuba Matters

In conversation with Marc Steiner, Tom Hayden will discuss his new book, Listen, Yankee!, an account of Cuban politics and a memoir of a U.S. revolutionary leader and founder of SDS. The book is based in part on conversations between Hayden and Ricardo Alarcon, a top leader of the Cuban Revolution, foreign minister, and U.N. representative.  

A leader in the student, antiwar, and civil rights protests in the 1960s, Tom Hayden served in the California legislature for 18 years. He is the director of the Peace and Justice Resource Center in California.

Writers LIVE programs are supported in part by a generous gift from PNC Bank.
