1958. Sierra Maestra, Cuba. Two young Americans spend five months with Fidel Castro’s combat unit, el Movimiento 26 de Julio. While there, the author became the only US citizen from the mainland to see action in combat with Fidel’s guerrilla unit. Written in the early 1960s, fresh from the jungle, this novel is based on those experiences and can now finally be released.

Bob Baldock will be in conversation with Kevin Hunsanger on the subject of his autobiographical novel Wild Green Oranges which dramatizes his time in combat in 1958 with Fidel Castro’s unit in the Sierra Maestra, as the only American from the U.S. mainland to fight with Fidel’s group.

Bob is a long-time public events producer for KPFA and a Berkeley community bookman at Moe’s Books, and co-founder of Black Oak Books. His artwork has appeared on the book covers of major publications and his event posters have lit-up the Bay Area for decades.

Kevin Hunsanger is Development Director for KPFA and was the co-owner of Green Apple Books and Music in San Francisco. While Kevin didn’t fight alongside rebels in the Sierra Maestra, he has spent a good bit of time in Cuba and loves the place!

Dear friends of our KPFA public events,

This will be the final event Bob and I produce for the station. Please join us. With warm thanks for your support over the years. The events will go forward in good hands.

Bob & Ken
