We’re celebrating the launch of Kuwento: Lost Things in Historic Filipinotown in Los Angeles!

The Kuwento: Lost Things anthology (edited by Rachelle Cruz and Melissa Rae Sipin-Gabon) spotlights poets, writers and visual artists’ renderings of Philippine mythology, including creation stories, mythical beings and animals, gods and heroes, folktales, folk sayings and songs, alamat (legend), and epics. Featuring an introduction by Palanca Award Winner, Dean Francis Alfar.

Contributors and friends Eddy M. Gana Jr., Stephanie Sajor, Noel Alumit, Zosimo Quibilan Jr., Cherisse Yanit Nadal, Angela Ina Penaredondo, and Eliseo Silva will share and read from the anthology. Eliseo’s artwork will be displayed and Zosimo’s band will also perform!
