Blind Cuban Writer to Present Storybook at International Fair
"Es mejor la noche" is the name of a short story to be presented at the International Book Fair by its author, Gilda Guimera, one of the 800 blind people in Cuba who have been able to develop their writing skills thanks to literary workshops.
The Cuban National Association for the Blind (ANCI) has organized hundreds of literary workshops across the island in which about 800 blind people have been involved.

Cuba´s developments in the field are the result of the government´s efforts to increase the educational level of the blind, which includes the creation of libraries and reading rooms for the blind, the provision of Braille printers and the formation of a movement of blind enthusiasts supported by ANCI and the Ministry of Culture.
