Overview

"This is a love story, told from the perspective of the woman who knew Paulo Freire 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 Sao 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." "Ana Maria Araujo Freire - Nita - was born on November 13, 1933. For decades, she had been dedicated to studying Brazilian education history, focusing her research on the historical conditions linked to the production of illiteracy. She holds Master's and Doctoral degrees in education from the Catholic University of Sao Paulo." "Nita and Paulo met early on in 1937, when he started attending the school owned by her father. In 1942, he became a teacher of Portuguese at the same school." "Both widowed, they married on March 27, 1988 in a religious ceremony in Recife, Brazil, and on August 19, 1988 in a civil ceremony in Sao Paulo."--BOOK JACKET.
