WOODBURY — Dr. Ira Mickenberg will give a presentation on Cuba: Revolution vs. Embargo at 7 p.m. Tuesday, January 21, at the Woodbury Public Library, 269 Main St. South. After his retirement from his Southbury medical practice in 2009, Dr. Mickenberg and his wife, Pat, have traveled frequently. They returned from a trip to Cuba with Road Scholar in November 2019, just as the U.S. severely restricted travel to Cuba.
Dr. Mickenberg will relate this information with the help of a slide show of the Cuban countryside. Emphasis will be on the effects of the revolution of 1959 compared to the effects of the U.S. embargo of 60 years on the Cuban people.
Registration is required by calling the library, 203-263-3502, or at www.woodburylibraryct.org.
