A couple of months ago, the Philippine American Writers and Artists, Inc. (PAWA) launched the book “Field of Mirrors: An Anthology of Philippine American Writers”, which features 71 Philippine American writers from all over the US.
On June 7, 2008, Filipino and Filipino-American writers whose works appear in the anthology will be at the Evanston Public Library for a reading and signing of the book. The event is part of the celebrations of the 110th anniversary of Philippine independence from Spain.
The authors who will be present are Rey E. de la Cruz, Rey Escobar, Almira A. Gilles, Susan T. Layug, Jennifer M. Macagba, J. Mark Munoz, Lewanda Lim and Edwin A. Lozada. They will be at the main branch of the Evanston Public Library at 1703 Orrington Ave., Evanston, Illinois, from 2 to 4 p.m.
