This week, Vanderbilt University added the Deluxe Edition of Vanishing Cuba to their Library’s permanent collection. I continue to be honored that more and more prestigious libraries across the country are buying my book. So exciting! Thank you, Vanderbilt.
At its founding in 1873, Vanderbilt University housed its original library in its main building. Today, the Jean and Alexander Heard Libraries are fundamental to the university’s goal of advancing scholarship and learning. They collect, preserve and make accessible a wide variety of resources, partner with faculty and students to shape research and encourage the development of informed scholars and engaged citizens.
Campus-wide wireless access opens the libraries’ virtual front door to 3.75 million visitors per year. Reflecting the work of library and university leaders to meet the needs of students, staff, faculty, and community members, these numbers continue to grow.

My Vanishing Cuba book is indeed finding its way around the globe. Just imagine… New York University in Abu Dhabi. NYU Abu Dhabi is one of the most diverse campuses in the world. Their students come from 120 countries and speak more than 100 languages. I’m proud that they have acquired Vanishing Cuba for their library.
Wow!!! Thank you, Melanie Chapman, for writing such a wonderful review of my Vanishing Cuba book! And to quote the poet John Dunne… “The poet John Dunne wrote “No man is an island…”. Spend time experiencing Cuba through Chinnici’s insightful eyes, and you may be tempted to reply “…and no island is one man.”
What an honor to have my first published book reside in the University of Cambridge Library in the United Kingdom. Many of you probably don’t know this, but this prestigious University (considered one of the top ten in the world) has over 100 libraries within its library system. Vanishing Cuba can be found in its Latin Studies Library.
