Canadian Author Stephen Kimber to Tour Northern California with “What Lies Across the Water “

After a successful East Coast tour last September that included a presentation in Boston at MIT, alongside Noam Chomsky, award-winning writer, editor and broadcaster Stephen Kimber will give presentations of his newly released book “What Lies Across the Water, The Real Story of the Cuban Five” in Northern California. The book recounts the events leading up to the 1998 arrest of the Cuban Five, five Cuban intelligence agents convicted of conspiring to commit espionage against the United States. The tour through the San Francisco Bay Area will occur from February 25th to March 4th. Kimber will be making presentations in universities and at community events. He will also give a number of media interviews and will meet with elected officials.
