Ninety Miles and a Lifetime Away: A conversation with David Powell and Jose Valiente
June 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Bringing together an unprecedented number of extensive personal stories, Ninety Miles and a Lifetime Away shares the triumphs and heartbreaking moments experienced by some of the first Cubans to come to the United States after Fidel Castro took power in 1959. It is a moving look inside fifteen years of migration that changed the two countries and transformed the lives of the people who found themselves separated from their homeland.
Author David Powell will be at Tombolo to share more about these oral histories with St. Pete author and journalist Craig Pittman. Powell and Pittman will also be joined by special guest, Jose Valiente, whose story is featured in the book!
