AAWW: The State of Filipino-American Literature

From my former (but forever and always) internship at theĀ Asian American Writers’ Workshop.

Regarding the publication of Kuwento: Lost Things, an anthology of Philippine myths retold, and writing about the FilAm experience.

I had the opportunity of meeting Jessica Hagedorn and asking her to (re)sign a copy of her book, Dogeaters. (I bought the book secondhand from a bookstore for a class, when I discovered that it was a signed copy from 2001. She kindly signed it, on another page, on the evening of the event.)
