Join us for the New York launch of scholar Christine Bacareza Balance’s new book Tropical Renditions: Making Musical Scenes in Filipino America (Duke 2016), a vital exploration of post-WWII Filipino literary and musical culture. We’ll also feature former AAWW Literary Award winner Patrick Rosal’s new poetry collection Brooklyn Antediluvian (Persea 2016). His work channels DJ culture, family history, soul music, dance, and Galeanoesque myth-making to explore vital questions about race in America. The evening will culminate with a conversation moderated by legendary novelist Jessica Hagedorn, author ofToxicology and former bandleader of The Gangster Choir.
