Curated by NORA GUTHRIE and music historian ROBERT SANTELLI this new book WOODY GUTHRIE: SONGS AND ART • WORDS AND WISDOM delves deep into his archives, giving unprecedented access and visibility to his lyrics, art, and correspondence; and spotlights Guthrie’s passionate social politics which are as vital today as ever.

This stunningly visual collection is enlightening, inspiring, and edifying, spotlighting Woody Guthrie as a significant guiding voice and citizen of the world.
A fresh, intimate, and vibrantly visual book brings to life Woody’s story through facsimiles of his own personal writings, photos, and artwork. Woody wrote powerfully about economic inequality, immigration reform, fascism, war, corruption from unbridled capitalism, patriotism, environmentalism, as well as spirituality of all kinds, love, and family.
"Bob Dylan once said, “You can listen to his songs and learn how to live”.
That line sums up what my life has evidenced. As his daughter, this is how he taught me how to live. His songs, his art, his secret journal entries, his essays full of clear and sometimes explosive ideas, have been there all my life teaching me how to live. These are the ideals that I’ve been encouraged to strive for, to reach up to, to think about. These are the people he wanted me to know about, the history he wanted me to learn. The love he wanted to express. Now it’s time for me to put together my selections from all these teachings–thoughts on politics, on religion, on relationships, on children, and more. I want to give everyone a taste of the teachings that benefited me most." ~ Nora Guthrie
