Eduardo Galeano with John Leonard, 31 May 2006 – Audio

Recorded at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico on May 31st, 2006.

“‘Developing countries’ is the name that experts use to designate countries trampled by someone else’s development.” So says Eduardo Galeano, Uruguayan writer and essayist, passionate advocate of human rights and justice, critic of globalization, and one-time political exile to Argentina and Spain. After reading from his work, Galeano joins in conversation with the legendary essayist and critic, John Leonard.

    2/25/07 – Thank you so much! I am an Eduardo Galeano fanatic. I was sad to have missed his reading and overjoyed to discover that, thanks to the Gods of Technology, I could hear the podcast of this presentation on my computer…..much laughter and a few tears while I listened — I am so grateful to Sr. Galeano for all his wonderful work, and to your foundation for this presentation. Thank you!

    I wonder if someone at the Lanann Foundation can help me get in touch with Eduardo Galeano. I would like to find the most direct way of writing him in Argentina. Please advise.
