A life fully lived, even with all its highs and lows, is set to unfold in the pages of Dr. Juan Silverio Latour’s Memoirs Eight Decades 1926-1998. Readers will be captured with the adventures and memories filling the pages of this book.

A twice-exiled Cuban-American physician lives through two revolutions, three hurricanes, and a near-death experience while living in Cuba, Mexico, Central America, France, and the United States – and lives to tell the captivating highlights of his life. Everyone is invited to accompany the author as he shares his memoirs.

This story spans eight decades – from the time he was four years old, witnessing the deadly Atlantic hurricane strike Cuba, to the time he was seventy-two years old, observing the devastating aftermath of a hurricane in Honduras. The best years of his life were spent in the midst of catastrophes, which afforded him to dissect life, similar to his dissection in medical studies.

About the Author
Dr. Juan Silverio was born in Havana, Cuba. At the early age of twelve, he was exiled to Tampa, Florida, with his father, mother, and sister. His father, at the time a major in the Medical Corps of the Cuban Army, was forced to leave his home as a result of Batista's military coup. In Tampa, Dr. Silverio attended and graduated from Jesuit High School. Later, he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from Tulane University in New Orleans. From there, he returned to Cuba and finished his studies at the Medical School of the University of Havana. Midway through the 20th century, politics again shifted in Cuba, this time by the communist regime of Fidel Castro, and Dr. Silverio was again forced into exile. Presently, he lives in Key Biscayne, Florida, and practices pediatrics. Dr. Silverio has written three books of poetry in Spanish and is the co-author of the compendium titled Greater Miami: Spirit of Cuban Enterprise (Copperfield Publications, Inc., Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 1996). Furthermore, he has collaborated on eight anthologies of English poetry.
