'Stories from the Stage': Last night before leaving Cuba

The World

“Stories from the Stage” are tales shared by ordinary people with extraordinary experiences. We start a segment today in collaboration with GBH's World. The focus will be on the lives, loves and losses of immigrants here in the US, like Ana Hebra Flaster, who came from Cuba when she was 6 years old. Flaster is a writer who grew up in New England and her storytelling is inspired by her father.
