Santiago’s Children in Spanish

Portada_FINAL_19 nov_1

Santiago’s Children was just recently released in a new Spanish version titled Los niños de La Granja.” Steve traveled to Santiago just this past week to present this new version at two book launches.

The first was at Saint George’s College, and the second was at Domingo Savio with a special performance by some of the children from Mi Club Domingo Savio.

The book launches offered wonderful opportunities to meet with and reunite with many important figures from the book and from Santiago.

As the recent article in the Santiago Times says: Santiago’s Children “is finally available in the language of the people who inspired it,” which gives much cause for celebration.

Benito Baranda wrote the introduction for the new version in which he says:

P1130880

“I am shocked once more by how much truth is represented from the reality and not from the creative mind of a writer, from the description of where he lived, to the description of each of the children, to the description of the dictatorship and the everyday life in the miserable oppression and abuse.”

The book launches offered wonderful opportunities to meet with and reunite with many important figures from the book and from Santiago.

Details, photos, and updates about the book Los niños de La Granja can be found on the new website and on the Facebook page for Santiago’s Children.

The Spanish version is now available in several bookstores in Santiago, Chile:
