The 23rd season of the Holguin Culture Week will be dedicated to two personalities of the homonymous province: historian Jose Abreu Cardet and radio presenter Sergio Antonio Gonzalez Valero; the traditional meeting with culture slated for January (14 through 18), is inspired on the day this northeastern jurisdiction was granted the title of City and Government Holding 263 years ago, said Juan Carlos Gonzalez Estrada, the director of the Municipal Culture Board.
Gonzalez Estrada added that the event will also be dedicated to the 470 years of the foundation of the Holguin Hato (farm), the seed of today's city of Holguin.
The two personalities to be honored during the Holguin Culture Week stand out for their remarkable outcomes in their careers. Abreu Cardet has written over thirty books on History, mainly on local events and specially on the wars for Cuba's independence (19th century), which have been published by national editing houses and from other nations, and has received many awards and acknowledgements, among others the Microfono de la Dignidad and the Seal for the 90 Years of Cuban Radio.
Gonzalez Valero is a celebrated presenter, mainly at Radio Angulo – the head station of the Holguin Province Radio Broadcasting System - and is considered a teacher for many generations there, who follow his dedication to this career.
For several decades Gonzalez Valero has been delighting goers with his voice, his way of presenting things, and for being a founder of Fiesta en el Campo radio show, a space that last 2014 turned 55 years.
