Celebrate Mother's Day at Explore: Being a Mother in the Amazon Rainforest
Explore Booksellers proudly hosts Judy Haas to share her beautiful book, Being a Mother whose message is universal. Raimunda Ferreira da Costa and her husband Gabriel, lived without running water or electricity, and raised 11 children in the Seringal Amazon forest in the 1950's. Using embellished Madonna and Child images, Judy Haas has illustrated a letter Raimunda wrote after the passing of her son, now published as this book. Raimunda has since passed away, but Judy Haas is happy to have completed this project for her shortly before that happened. She hopes that the resources generated through the first publication of this meaningful work will stand as an inheritance for Raimunda's children and grandchildren. Join us to celebrate Mothers across generations and geography.
