    RALEIGH, N.C., May 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Publica y comparte! (Publish and
 pass it on!) Jose Marti, the renowned poet and writer who led the Cuban
 independence movement, once said that there are three things every person
 should do in his or her life -- "plant a tree, have a son and write a
 book." As the anniversary of Marti's death was on May 19, Lulu.com is
 inviting you to honor his legacy by creating your own legacy -- publish and
 pass it on!

     Cuban Author Shares His Voice
     Lulu helps unpublished creators express their works, like current Lulu
 author Ralph Rewes. The former editor-in-chief of a Miami based Spanish-
 language magazine, Rewes published El Diario de un Cubanito, a
 controversial Spanish language book that created heated debates yet
 remained for two years in the Miami Best Sellers list of books in Spanish.
 Using Lulu.com, Rewes was able to self publish the complete versions in
 English and Spanish (http://www.lulu.com/ralphrewes).
     "With Lulu, I uncovered new audiences for my stories, and using a
 digital marketplace means that they will never go out of print and can be
 shared with generations to come," said Rewes. "Using Lulu is a great way to
