Eduardo Galeano is our worlds most lovable revolutionary  Naomi Klein

Story-hunter and gatherer Galeano has captured a covey of extraordinary tales from
the wise everybodies of the world they are medicine for our times  tales to break our hearts open and restore to us our humanity. To experience them alone is trans-formational. But to watch them soar to their full potential, they must be released from captivity and read aloud.  Sandra Cisneros

Eduardo Galeano (1940-2015), one of Latin Americas most distinguished writers, was
born in Montevideo. He lived in exile in Argentina and Spain for years before returning
to Uruguay, where he recently passed away. Among his works are: The Open Veins of Latin America, Memory of Fire (3 volumes), The Book of Embraces, Children of the Days,
and Walking Words.  KPFA Radio is deeply grateful to have presented him six times over the years in public benefits inevitably jampacked.

The Bay Area authors chosen to read Eduardos work in tribute are known for    
their exceptional writings in poetry and prose, their humanity, and their
reliable solidarity.
