Eduardo Galeano was in the US in May of 2013 to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and to promote his book, Los híjos de los días. The English edition, Children of the Days: A Calendar of Human History, was published by Nation Books. Mr. Galeano spoke about and read from the book, followed by a conversation with Marie Arana.

Not everyone can pay for the news. But if you can, we need your support.
Truthout is widely read among people with lower incomes and among young people who are mired in debt. Our site is read at public libraries, among people without internet access of their own. People print out our articles and send them to family members in prison — we receive letters from behind bars regularly thanking us for our coverage. Our stories are emailed and shared around communities, sparking grassroots mobilization.
We’re committed to keeping all Truthout articles free and available to the public. But in order to do that, we need those who can afford to contribute to our work to do so.
We’ll never require you to give, but we can ask you from the bottom of our hearts: Will you donate what you can, so we can continue providing journalism in the service of justice and truth?
