He may now be a touted author and professor at Yale University, but as a kid, Carlos Eire was airlifted out of Cuba in 1962 during the Cuban Revolution as part of Operation Pedro Pan. Tonight, Eire will be introduced by U.S. Senator Mel Martinez to discuss his award-winning (and also barred from Cuba) nonfiction book Waiting for Snow over supper. The evening also includes a book signing and live auction of Hector “Nicer” Nazario’s Roberto Clemente tribute mural. If you nabbed a ticket to this sold-out affair, consider it history in the making. – Veronica Figueroa
