Yoani Sanchez to hold first public event in Miami today

Via The Miami Herald:

Cuban blogger Yoani Sánchez to meet the public in Miami on Monday

 </p>

<p>After a quiet weekend with her family, Cuban blogger Yoani Sánchez returns to the public stage Monday with a full agenda that takes her from The Miami Herald editorial board to institutions of higher education.

It will be a day of questions and accolades for Sánchez, an independent journalist and author of the Generacion Y blog, which chronicles daily life in Cuba and is translated into 20 languages. She also reaches more than 460,000 people around the world via her Twitter account.

She’ll start the day with an 8:30 a.m. meeting with editors and reporters from The Miami Herald and then appear before some 800 people at a 2 p.m. event hosted by Miami Dade College at the Freedom Tower, a former processing center for Cuban refugees.

Miami Herald Editorial Page Editor Myriam Marquez will lead a public conversation with Sánchez, who also will be receiving the MDC Presidential Medal for championing human rights. The conversation will be live-streamed on the college website.

At 7 p.m., she’s scheduled to deliver a lecture on “Can Technologies and Social Media Accelerate Cuba’s Democratization?” and receive the FIU Medallion of Courage, a prize awarded to an individual pursuing a noble cause at personal cost.

The event will be broadcast live on Univision America radio stations, including 1140 AM in Miami, and live-streamed at http://sites.fiu.edu/yoani in English and Spanish.

All tickets for the Monday events have already been distributed.
