"Eduardo Galeano is our world's most loveable 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 transformational. 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 America's most distinguished writers, was born in Montevideo. He lived in exile in Argentina and Spain for years before returning to Uruguay. 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.

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

Alice Walker is an internationally renowned American novelist, short story writer, poet, and activist. She wrote the critically acclaimed novel The Color Purple for which she won the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

Al Young is an American poet, novelist, essayist, screenwriter, and professor. In 2005, he was named Poet Laureate of California.

Alejandro Murguia is an American poet, short story writer, editor and professor. In 2012, he was named San Francisco Poet Laureate.

Aurora Levins Morales is a Puerto Rican Jewish writer and poet and "a dear friend, teacher, mentor, visionary, poetic inspiration - a true outside-the-box radical treasure..."
-Penny Rosenwasser, author
