Today I was so saddened to learn of the death of writer Eduardo Galeano, but when I saw the news of his passing, I was inspired to pick up his book The Book of Embraces and give it another read. I was first introduced to this book by a professor in my very first master’s workshop. It is one of the most unique, beautiful, and affecting books I have ever read. It is just lovely, and is a book that invites the reader to think and ponder and reflect. I absolutely recommend it, if you are open to non-traditional styles. I am sad that Eduardo Galeano is no longer with us, but happy to have been reminded of how fantastic his words are.
