Last Sunday, I had the chance to meet Christine Eber with my book club. In When A Woman Rises, a woman tells her daughter the life story of her best friend who disappeared a long time ago. This is a beautifully written book about transmission, love and friendship. The story takes place in the Maya township of Chenalhó in Chiapas. The beautiful items on the picture are from Weaving for Justice, a non-profit organization working with Maya women.

Reviewsbylola Gorgeous picture and that cover is striking! 7mo
JulietteGF @Reviewsbylola Thanks! Yes, that's something we talked about with the author, how this wonderful cover was created. Here the cover is as good as the book ;) 7mo

Unity/solidarity, equality, indigenous culture, mother - daughter relationship, Zapatistas are some of the topics embedded in this little book. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. What a powerful story... I'm looking forward to meeting the author this weekend!
