Gold, Multicultural (Adult Nonfiction)

Ann Murdy has been photographing Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico for more than twenty years. As her hauntingly beautiful images show, in Mexico death is considered a part of life, something to be celebrated, not feared. This unforgettable book features ninety of Murdy’s most stunning images of Day of the Dead celebrations from three rural Mexican villages, a conversation between her and curator Cesaréo Moreno, and an essay by Mexican American writer Denise Chávez.
