Macario Pineda Centenary to be Commemorated at the Ateneo de Manila
This year, our nation celebrates the centenary of Macario Pineda (1912-1950), a writer significant to Philippine letters, one whose broad understanding of Filipino culture and masterful renditions of local color continue to present a way of seeing and being in this age of globalization.
Have you ever found yourself (or someone you know) in a love triangle? Do you have an “imported” love? Are “mistresses” and “unfaithful spouses” topics that appeal to you? Do you have taboo love questions you have been wanting to ask Dr. Holmes?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, then you should attend FWGP’s July edition of
OPEN (NA OPEN) BOOK
with Dr. Margarita Holmes and Jeremy Baer!
The event features their new books IMPORTED LOVE and LOVE TRIANGLES.
Date: July 21, 2012
