Cecilia Brainard Will Give a Talk About "Cebu As Inspiration to My Writings", June 27

hashtag #cebuLitFest
Hi, I don't always have the opportunity to give a talk and do a literary reading in my birth city of Cebu, Philippines, but this June 27, I will do that. My topic is "Cebu As Inspiration to My Writings" and I'll share how Cebu became Ubec in my writings, and I'll also be reading excerpts from my writings that feature Ubec.

The event is on Friday, June 27, 2014 at 4:30 p.m. at the Ayala Activity Center, in Ayala Center, Cebu City.  At 5:30 p.m. I'm part of a panel discussion on "Writing In Diaspora."

The event is free. I'm looking forward to seeing my Cebuano friends there.
Here's the more information with the schedule:
