Sansu Ramsey will read from:
            Elizabeth Ramsey, Queen of Philippine Rock N' Roll (2017)

Daughter of Queen of Rock and Roll Elizabeth Ramsey, Susan Ramsey or Sansu started her show business career as the 13-year-old back-up dancer for her mother. After raising her family, Sansu hosted her own variety TV show, the Sansu Show, a weekly variety talk show featuring inspirational, talented and successful Global Pinoys. Sansu had always envisioned that “a little bit of comedy, some singing and dancing, my uniquely-hearty laughter, and her Bisaya- accented English with English sub-titles” would bridge the gap between young and old, communities of color, and lifestyles. 

Amanda Ngoho Reavey  will read from:                                            .
            Marilyn. (The Operating System, 2015)
