RUM, CIGARS AND MORE
Benny Moré is widely thought of as Cuba's finest singer. Ever the cultural archaeologist, author John Radanovich signs at Book Soup Wildman of Rhythm, the singer's first English-language biography that finally exposes to this corner of the Earth to the genius that was Benny Moré. Not only will you get a firm handshake from the author when you buy the book, as well as the knowledge that youre launching yourself on a great cultural quest in the reading, but Radanovich will also give you a hand-rolled cigar featuring Benny Moré's face on the band, along with rum and a healthy earful of Moré music. Are those Cuban cigars? Better not tell TSA.
