“Palm trees in the snow” with Gloria Strassburger & Dr Gross in Cuba with Fausta Wertz

Fausta Wertz, editor of Fausta's Blog.  We will look at the major stories of the week, from Dr Gross on a "hunger strike" in Cuba, to President Correa in the US, to the continuing violence in Venezuela, the upcoming World Cup in Brazil and other front page stories in Latin America newspapers.

We will also hear from Gloria M. Strassburger, the author of "Palm trees in the snow", a book about her Cuban American experience.

Gloria's book is the latest Cuban American story.  Gloria is a "Pedro Pan" and relates her family's story and impact of the communist takeover of the island.
