Book of the Week: Kahlo by Andrea Kettenmann

Theme for July is Storytelling 
Storytelling brings out the most joyful memories of one’s life. In my case, storytelling reminds me of when I was a child and my mother used to tell me stories about fairy tales, which at that age I was completely amazed by them. I loved them! 
However, storytelling has its own meaning for everyone. So stop today by La Casa Azul Bookstore, enjoy your new book of the week, and let the magic of storytelling transport you to the journey waiting to be explore.

  1. This book compels reflection, as it presents a female artist who drew on her somber, tragic biography for her greatest work. In Kahlo, the viewer confronts suffering, permeating like a dagger deeply into the life of a woman and of a people, colonized, demeaned, transformed Mexico.
