Manila Bulletin - - Front Page - (Dom Ga­leon)

On Mon­day, Manila Bul­letin (MB) Life­style ed­i­tor AA Patawaran un­veiled his new book ", Manila Was A Long Time Ago," at the Manila House Pri­vate Mem­bers Club at BGC.

It's a col­lec­tion of 16 short sto­ries fea­tur­ing Filipinos in var­i­ous cities across the globe — from the busy streets of New York and San Fran­cisco, to the cul­tural and his­tor­i­cal al­leys of Athens and Venice, and to the so­cial hubs of Manila. Pub­lished by Anvil Pub­lish­ing and dis­trib­uted by Na­tional Book Store, it's the third book by AA Patawaran and the sec­ond that fea­tures art­works by Love Marie Ong­pauco-Es­cud­ero.

The book launch was hosted by Stephanie Zu­biri-Crespi and KC Con­cep­cion read an ex­cerpt from one of the short sto­ries in the book. Na­tional Artist for Lit­er­a­ture F. Sionil Jose, who was among the evening's spe­cial guests, gave a short mes­sage.
