First Filipino American International Book Festival

October 4, 2011

During the first Filipino American International Book Festival held in San Francisco October 1 & 2, 2011, the Center for Babaylan Studies graciously invited me to join their Opening Ritual for the second day of the festival. Here, I read the Invocation written by Lizae Reyes, followed by a lovely ceremony which set a tone of celebration and reverence for the Filipino spirit found in the written, spoken, acted, sung, words of our people inside thirty-eight booths, embraced by the Asian Art Museum on one side, and the San Francisco Public Library on the other.  My heart is full of more stories to come.
