The volume Monsignor Carlos Manuel de Céspedes confession, written by Luis Baez and Pedro de la Hoz, and published by the Publishing House Abril, was presented on Thursday 19 at the House of Cultural Alba in the context of the Book Fair of Havana.
It is an extensive interview to the intellectual and Cuban priest, descendant of Father of the Nation, in which both biographical and other related political and cultural life of the nation address.
Before his death in 2014, Carlos Manuel de Céspedes y García Menocal, who was a member of the Cuban Academy of Len¬gua, reviewed and approved the transcriptional responses to exhaustive questionnaire of the authors, who for ten long sessions they discussed with the respondent.
Unfortunately Baez, one of the most important Cuban journalists this épo¬ca could not see the fruit of this editorial endeavor. A few days ago died in the capital. So the presentation of the book de¬vendrá tribute to his memory.
