Stories of often harrowing escapes from oppressive or dangerous countries will be shared live and in person by five immigrants who lived them during a free event titled, “When Home Won’t Let You Stay: Stories of Escape and Refuge” — co-sponsored by the Midpeninsula Community Media Center and the Palo Alto Library.
The event will be debuted publicly May 10, 7 to 9 p.m. at the Mitchell Park Community Center’s El Palo Alto Room.
