Chronicles of Love: My Life with Paulo Freire

Translated by Alex Oliveira- Introduction by Donaldo Macedo


Ana Maria Freire Araújo and Donaldo Macedo

This is a love story, told from the perspective of the woman who knew Paulo Friere perhaps better than any other living person. It is a warm, touching, informative account of the marriage and relationship of Paulo and Nita Freire.
Paulo Freire was born in Recife, Brazil on September 19, 1921 and died in the city of São Paulo on May 2, 1997. He is known throughout the world as the author of a revolutionary literacy method for adults. More than that, he developed a wide-ranging understanding of education based on a reading of the word and of the world.
