2021 Hot Off the Press Literary Reading - YouTube link & Graphics Used


12/21 Statement from Cecilia Manguerra Brainard regarding PAWA and Hot Off the Press Literary Readings: Please be informed that I will no longer be working on future Hot Off the Press Literary Readings (HOTP) and other programs with the San Francisco group PAWA (also known as PAWA, Inc.).  This group is also known as Philippine American Writers and Artists, Filipino American International Book Festival, Filbookfestival.org. You can contact me directly for more information.


The 2021 Hot Off the Press Literary Reading by nine Filipino and FilAm authors went on the air, via Zoom, last Saturday, October 9, 2021 at 5 p.m. California time. It was 8 am. Sunday morning for our Filipino authors, and 9 a.m. in Japan for one of our authors who's a professor at Kyoto University.

The readers were: Gina Apostol, Jhoanna Lynn Cruz, George Gonzaga Deoso, Caroline Sy Hau, Mae Respicio, Randy Ribay, Brian Ascalon Roley, Ricco Siasoco, and Lara Stapleton. 

Organizer/Moderator was Cecilia Brainard.

It ran for one hour and 20 minutes.  It was essentially flawless.  You can watch the program in the San Francisco Public Library's YouTube site. Don't forget to "Like" the program. 


I'm sharing graphics used in the program:
