Ashland Author Arellano Boosts New Novel
We wonder sometimes when Robert Arellano sleeps.
He's got talents as an author, teacher, and musician (among other skills), and has just cranked out his sixth novel. Havana Libre is the sequel to Havana Lunar, his critically acclaimed book from 2010.
Bombs, terrorists, and spies populate the new book, which is set in the Cuba of 20 years ago. The author, currently on sabbatical from Southern Oregon University, visits the studio to talk about his body of work.
