Rizal@150 celebration is still in the air. It was only yesterday that I found out about “Remembering Rizal, Voices from the Diaspora” book in which two of my poems have been included. It is an honor to be part of the contributing authors as most of them are prominent Filipino and Filipino-American writers.
My poem “Ode to Usman” is placed under the Youth subheading while the poem “Stove Flames” is placed under the Fable and Legend subheading. What is more interesting with this book is that it was published abroad and is now being launched in different places in the United States.
"Remembering Rizal, Voices from the Diaspora" is published by the Philippine American Writers and Artists, Inc. (PAWA, Inc.) and was edited by Edwin A. Lozada.
