Lily Prellezo

Congrats to WIP Alumna, Lily Prellezo.  Her book, written in collaboration with Jose Basulto;  Seagull One: The True Story of Jose Basulto and Brothers to the Rescue will be published in Fall 2010 by the University Press of Florida.

The nonfiction narrative tells the story of the seventeen nationalities that came together in multi-ethnic Miami to save the lives of the rafters leaving Cuba during the 1990s. On February 24, 1996, Castro ordered two planes shot down, killing three Americans and one U.S. resident. The pilots were a broad spectrum of ex-CIA freedom-fighters, teenage pilots, and soccer moms.

Congrats, Lily!
