Day 13: The Book of Embraces


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.
