MxCC Professor Reads from His Historical Novel About 1960s Cuban Exiles on March 5
Middlesex Community College History Professor Victor Triay will host a book reading and discussion of his newly published historical novel On Freedom’s Shores on Thursday, March 5 from 7-8:30 p.m. in the College’s new Pavilion at Founder’s Hall. The book, which is available at amazon.com, completes the gripping trilogy of the León family, freedom fighters living under Fidel Castro’s regime in the 1960s, telling the tale of the León children who fled Castro’s Communist Cuba after the Bay of Pigs invasion as unaccompanied minors. The children first land in Miami but quickly end up in New York City where their lives take a series of unexpected turns. Triay, a Cuban American born and raised in Miami, has written extensively about Fidel Castro and the Communist takeover of the island nation. Free parking is available.
