M. Evelina Galang will be reading from
Lolas' House: Filipino Women Living with War (Northwestern University Press 2017).

In Lolas' House, Galang tells the stories of sixteen surviving Filipino "comfort women." Lolas' House, a book of testimony and documentation, is a book of witness, of survival, and of the female body. Intensely personal and globally political, it is the legacy of Lolas' House to the world.

Galang teaches in and directs the Creative Writing Program at the University of Miami, and is core faculty and board member for Voices of our Nation Arts Foundation.
