#PhilippineLiterature PEN/Solidaridad launch Cecilia Brainard's novels

Internet in Makati is slow but here is a picture taken at the June 24 launch for my 2 novels, Magdalena and The Newspaper Widow, at the iconic bookshop, Solidaridad.

There was a lively discussion after my talk and I'll expand on that later on, but we touched on publishing, marketing issues, writing historical fiction, the Alex Tizon's article My Family's Slave, and more.
