Margaret Randall Pays Tribute to Women from CubaMATANZAS, Cuba, Mar 8 (ACN) US writers Margaret Randall and Barbara Byers, invited to the 27th International Book Fair in Matanzas paid tribute on Thursday to Haydee Santamaria as icon of Cuban women.

During the event, the Palacio de Junco Museum was inaugurated with an exhibition of drawings and art books by Byers and a Poetry book entitled "Del Pequeno Charlie Lindbergh" (From the small Charlie Lindbergh) by Randall was presented and published in Cuba by the Matanzas editorial.

Margaret Randall said that she met Haydee when she headed Casa de las Americas Cultural Institution; she was a woman that meant a lot to my personal life and is still a very important part of the Revolution and the people.

During the presentation, Randall offered details on her book on the Heroine of the Moncada, which will be published in Cuba soon and is translated into Spanish by Aida Bahr.

The book on Haydee was a dream come true, it is an important and necessary text with a human perspective, she was a figure with a merit of painful experiences without ever loving life and creation, said Aida Bahr.

Margaret Randall offered the local public an opportunity to listen to several of her poems from the book during a bilingual lecture accompanied by the translator Israel Dominguez.

The Book Fair has inspired me, coming to Matanzas is always an interesting experience as I discover new poets, said Randall who carried out a broad agenda as part of the literary event that will conclude on Saturday.

The Book Fair dedicated Thursday's event to women and characterized by the reading of poems by young authors in addition to the sale of books.
