The Book of Emma Reyes: A Memoir by Emma Reyes

Monday • September 25 • 6pm

The book store cafe fireside

Join Nick's Picks book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

Abandoned by their mother, Emma and her older sister grew up near a garbage heap in a windowless room without a toilet or water or electricity. Illiterate until her late teens, Emma made her way across South America to Europe, working and learning and painting until she was befriended by Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Pier Paolo Pasolini.

This posthumous memoir composed of 23 letters was first published 10 years after Emma Reyes' death. It's a truthful, child's-eye view of abject poverty and the grim unfairness of life and it shows how these factors shaped a strong female artist.
