Wednesday, March 28 | 7 pm | Tritico TheatreAlina Fernandez


Alina Fernández, daughter of late Cuban leader Fidel Castro, will make an appearance at McNeese next year for a book presentation on her life.

Fernández, who fled the island in 1993 and joined the millions of Cubans in exile, will share what it was like to grow up as the secret daughter of a leader who ruled with an iron fist. As part of the Cuban elite, Fernández will discuss the political arena on the island during the 1960s and 70s and share personal anecdotes and little-known snippets of Cuban society and the world surrounding her father.
