Meet the Author: Blas A. Padrino

Orlando Public Library, Albertson Room
Saturday, October 6, 11:30 a.m.

Reporter Terry Toledo never imagined that riding on a hurricane-tracker’s plane in the eye of a storm would result in anything more than a thirty-second news segment about ferocious weather. When she and storm-tracker Felix Robles realize they’ve stumbled upon a half-century-old plane wreck dumped by the hurricane onto a deserted Bahamian islet halfway to Cuba, they suddenly find themselves targeted by someone who will stop at nothing to keep the truth about the wreck a secret forever. Cuban born author and lawyer Blas Padrino will discuss his novel Flight to Nowhere. Book sale and signing follows the program.
