Finlos Asks is a show about how people live and grow amidst impermanence. Interviews feature people who have encountered cultural shifts and life changes and explore how they have endured and flourished in life’s constant changes.
My guest for this episode is Virgil Suárez, a friend, colleague, and Mentor. Virgil was one of my first and definitely most influential writing instructors in the Creative Writing program at Florida State University. In this episode we discuss his family’s move from Cuba to the US after Castro’s rise to power, using writing to understand our own truths, and the importance of continuity in life.
