Celebrating Filipino American History Month

October is Filipino American History Month! Let's celebrate together at a special Words and Works Expressed Show on October 15 at the Filipino Community Center, Seattle, WA.

The Filipino Community of Seattle Kultura Arts has prepared a lexus level "ALAY SA BELOVED COMMUNITY" show. The evening starts at 6:30 with an FCS Arts Gallery opening of photographic art by James Ardena, Joysha Fajardo, Melissa Noledo, Carina del Rosario and Joseph Songco followed by a no host dinner at 7 p.m.

At 8 p.m. the WORDS AND WORKS EXPRESSED reading will feature award winning poets and writers Rick Barot, Rebecca Mabanglo-Mayor, Oliver de la Paz, Michelle Penaloza and Geronimo Tagatac. The show will be opened by Bengie Santos performing an original work "Bayan" choreographed to Vincent Noriega's jazz piano piece with Katrina Pestano rapping with Tawa Sa Lahat. True to form, the celebration continues at 9 p.m. with a dance with DJ Spinja.

I have about a dozen copies of Pause Mid-Flight and I'll have them available at the reading. Hope to see you there!
