Young Professionals: Face to Face with Julia Cooke

Events | Young Professionals

Join us for a night of informal conversation with journalist Julia Cooke, author of The Other Side of Paradise: Life in the New Cuba, on cultural changes in Cuba, how the next generation is faring in post-Castro Cuba, and what the challenges and opportunities are for writers-journalists in a rapidly changing digital, dematerialized landscape.

Julia Cooke is a freelance journalist and teacher who has lived in and reported from Mexico City and Havana. Born and raised in Portland, she now lives in New York City where she writes and teaches at the New School. Her essays about Cuba have been published in Conde Nast Traveller, The Virginia Quarterly Review, and The Best Women's Travel Writing anthology, among other publications.
