Book About The Cuban Five is Finalist for Literary Award in Canada

Havana, Jun 24 (Prensa Latina) A book called “Lo Que Hay del Otro Lado del Mar” (What Lies Across the Sea: The Real Story of The Cuban Five) about the real history of the Cuban Five, narrated by Canadian writer Stephen Kimber, is among the finalists to a literary award in Canada. The book is nominated to the Evelyn Richardson Award to the Best Non Fiction Book in the Canadian Atlantic Coast in 2013.

The results will be known in September.

The news was confirmed to Prensa Latina by Kimber, who recently took part in a day in Washington to ask for the solution of the case of the Cuban Five, in this case, three of them who are still in prison: Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino and Antonio Guerrero.

“Though my work does not win the award, I am going to have the chance to talk about the case of the Cuban Five everywhere I go, from July to September. It will be another chance to talk to the people who do not know the story,” said Kimber, interim head of the Journalism Staff in the University of King, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, also awarded in 2003 with another book, called “Sailors, Slackers and Blind Pigs: Halifax at War”.

The book took Kimber to carefully look for the innecessary information, to study more than 20,000 pages of the court’s records and otehr thousands of documents.

The award, in honor of writer Evelyn Richardson, was presented for the first time in 1978, and is delivered to the best non fiction titles in Nova Scotia.
