Eduardo Galeano is the world-renowned Uruguayan author of the Memory of Fire Trilogy, The Book of Embraces, and many other masterworks. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez gave his Open Veins of Latin America to President Obama when they first  met, sending the book overnight to #2 on Amazon's bestseller list.

One of Latin America's most distinguished writers, journalists and historians, Eduardo Galeano is the author of the Memory of Fire Trilogy, Open Veins of Latin America, Days and Nights of Love and War, Walking Words, Soccer in Sun and Shadow, The Book of Embraces, Mirrors, and many other works. Born in Montevideo in 1940, Galeano lived in exile in Argentina and Spain for many years before returning to Uruguay. His work has inspired popular and classical music composers from all over the world. He was the recipient of the first Lannan Prize for Cultural Freedom, the Casa de las Americas Prize, and the First Distinguished Citizen of the region by the countries of Mercosur.  His admirers include Isabel Allende, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Subcomandante Marcos, Howard Zinn, Naomi Klein, and of course Hugo Chavez.  Eduardo is a man of truly progressive principles and pure literary duende.

Galeano's new work unfurls like a medieval book of days. Each page has an illuminating story that takes inspiration from that day of the calendar year. Each entry resurrects the heroes and heroines who have fallen off the historical map. Beautifully translated by Galeano's longtime collaborator, Mark Fried, Children of the Days is a great humanist treasure that shows us how to live and how to remember.
