"It may be that few Americans know Cuba as well as Tom Miller does," according to the editor of The Reader's Companion to Cuba. Miller's tome, Trading With the Enemy: A Yankee Travels Through Castro's Cuba, is "required reading for anyone who proposes to visit--or even talk about--Cuba today." The ASU Art Museum proposes to talk about Cuba, and they're bringing in the expert. Miller, who lives in Tucson, visits Cuba several times a year exploring the lesser-known parts of the island. As part of the ASU Art Museum speaker series accompanying "Contemporary Art From Cuba: Irony and Survival on the Utopian Island," Miller will speak at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, November 17, in lecture hall AED 60 of the College of Architecture and Environmental Design (north) building on the topic "A Street-Level Look at Cuba." Copies of Trading With the Enemy will be available afterward for Miller to sign. Admission is free. 965-2787.

Final Exit author Derek Humphry and Arizona right-to-die advocate Mary Clement speak about the history and future of their movement, and sign the book they co-authored, Freedom to Die: People, Politics and the Right-to-Die Movement, at 7 p.m. Tuesday, November 17, at Borders Books & Music at Biltmore Fashion Park, 24th Street and Camelback, Suite 200. Admission is free, 957-6660.
