MB Lifestyle editor launches new book
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.
