I’m happy to share pictures taken at the Glendale Community College’s Filipino Fiesta celebration, where fellow writer Noel Alumit and I gave a talk and reading. The celebration ran for 2 days on April 2 and 3. Noel and I gave our presentation on April 2. The Mayor of Culver City, Thomas Aujero Small, also gave a talk on April 2. The room was full of very attentive students and teachers. Thanks to Agnes Eguaras and Linda Nietes and all.
The group photo shows from l‑r: John De Castro (contemporary artist), Agnes Eguaras (Dean of Instructional Services), Hazel Ramos (History faculty), Noel Alumit, Cecilia Brainard, Dr. David Viar (College President), Mayor Thomas Small, Dr. Paul Dimayuga (Postcolonial artist and scientist).
