    Cuba is world-renowned for its cigars. But there’s a deeper story behind their creation. As per a tradition that started in 1865, storytellers, or “lectores,” stand at a platform reading to hundreds of cigar makers every day. Texts range from magazine articles and news stories to dramatic readings from works of classic literature. Today, the tradition carries on, entertaining, inspiring and unifying generation after generation of factory workers.
