This one's for my people who read (and most likely not like I do with my lips wide open).
Philippine Expressions Bookshop will be launching four new titles by Fil Am authors on Friday, March 26, 2010 from 5:30pm to 9pm at the Community Room of the Asian Pacific American Legal Center (APALC) which is located at 1145 Wilshire Boulevard corner Lucas Avenue, LA.Get it in full here.
The four authors are Gina Apostol, Peter Bacho, Arturo R. Garcia and Florante Peter Ibanez and his wife, Roselyn Estepa Ibanez who is a co-author. Gina Apostol wrote The Revolution According to Raymundo Mata (Anvil Publishing, Manila, 2009) which is a historical fiction set in 1898 when Filipinos revolted against the Spanish regime. This New York-based author plumbs the depths of one's psyche that Filipinos may never look at themselves and their history the same way again.
