In his beautifully written memoir Santiago's Children (University of Texas Press), Steve Reifenberg recalls his two years spent working at a small orphanage in a poor neighborhood in Santiago, Chile, where a determined single woman was trying to create a stable home for a dozen or so children who had been abandoned or abused. An engrossing story not only of Reifenberg's own coming-of-age, but also of the courage and resilience of the poorest and most vulnerable residents of Latin America.

hope to see you!
