As a member of a small group of architects sanctioned as cultural ambassadors by the U.S. State Department, Bernardsville resident Philip Kennedy-Grant, FAIA, recently traveled to Havana, Cuba. Mr. Kennedy-Grant will present a lecture on what he saw and learned, illustrated with photographs and drawings, at Bernardsville Public Library on Wednesday, August 13 at 7:00 pm. Impressed by his experience, he will describe the recent history and culture of one of the most fascinating and provocative cities in the world.
