Chinese and Cuban publishing houses have signed an agreement to jointly bring the Chinese leader’s thoughts on state governance and other issues to Cuba.
The agreement was signed during the 27th edition of the Havana International Book Fair that ended Sunday. Hermes Moreno, of the Cuban publishing house New Millennium that signed the agreement, said 5,000 to 10,000 copies are planned to be printed.
Cubans are interested to learn about the thinking of the top political leader of the People’s Republic of China.
Cuban readers are looking forward to having greater access to Xi’s books, as well as classic and contemporary Chinese literary works, which New Millennium may publish in the near future.

Weinstein titles will now be published under the Hachette Books imprint, Deadline has confirmed.
The company said in a statement, “Hachette Book Group has terminated the Weinstein Books imprint, effective immediately (Perseus Books has had a co-publishing agreement with The Weinstein Company, under which we published around ten new books a year). Titles currently under the Weinstein Books imprint will be published by Hachette Books imprint, and the Weinstein Books imprint team will join Hachette Books.
The imprint, which was originally called Miramax Books, was founded in 2001 by Bob and Harvey Weinstein. It relaunched in 2009 as part of Perseus Books, an independent publishing company that Hachette bought in 2016. The imprint typically publishes around 10 new titles a year.
Despite the Weinstein’s cache in the entertainment industry, Weinstein Books never made much of a mark in the literary world. The majority of its titles tend to be celebrity-driven memoirs and diet and wellness books.
