PAWA (Philippine American Writers and Artists) in conjunction with Arkipelago Books presents a book launch of Growing Up Filipino II: More Stories for Young Adults (Edited and Collected by Cecilia Manguerra Brainard)
Featuring Readers Rashaan Alexis Meneses, Veronica Montes, Tony Robles, and Marianne Villanueva.
BOOK DESCRIPTION: A welcome addition to Filipino American literature, Growing Up Filipino II: More Stories for Young Adults is the second volume of the Growing Up Filipino series by PALH. In this collection of 27 short stories, Filipino and Filipino American writers explore the universal challenges and experiences of Filipino teens after the historic events of 9/11. The modern demands do not hinder Filipino youth from dealing with the universal concerns of growing up: family, friends, love, home, budding sexuality, leaving home. The delightful stories are written by well known as well as emerging writers. While the target audience of this fine anthology is young adults, the stories can be enjoyed by adult readers as well.
