Former political detainee Ericson Acosta will be launching his book of poems and songs in Filipino, Mula Tarima Hanggang, on July 17, 2015, Friday, 5:00 pm at Mt Cloud Bookshop. The launch will include musical performances and poetry by Ericson Acosta, Renato Reyes, Jr. of BAYAN and members of the Baguio community followed by an open mic and book signing.

The book, published by UP Press, is a collection of verses that move from Acosta’s commitment to the struggles of the country, to his experience behind bars, and his spirited survival despite having to endure much suffering. The book speaks to the lives of present and former political detainees.

This event is free and open to the public.
