June 11, 2009

In this history of human adventure, one of Latin America’s most distinguished writers illuminates movements of ideas and society across centuries by recalling the lives of artists, writers, gods and visionaries– from the Garden of Eden to 21st-century New York.

Eduardo Galeano is one of Latin America’s most distinguished writers, journalists and historians. He is the author of the Memory of Fire trilogy, Open Veins of Latin America, Soccer in Sun and Shadow, and many other works. Born in Montevideo, in 1940, he 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 speaks five languages. He was the recipient of the first Lannan Prize for Cultural Freedom. He has been translated into over 20 languages. He has just been awarded “The Outstanding Citizen of the South,” a new prize awarded by the Common Market of the South.
