Mark Coker, CEO & Founder of Smashwords ePublishing house, is sponsoring a petition to the White House to end the 50-year old book embargo against Cuba.
Books? Publishing? Really? He attended a conference there and was startled to find the Cuban literacy rate is nearly 100%, some 20 points *higher* than the US!
And the US embargo continues to have a devastating effect on publishing, authors, and the literary community there. It's senseless!
