Filipino American Literary Symposium This Saturday, 26 February 2011

How is a Symposium different from a Conference?  Self isn’t sure.

All she knows is:  it is FREEZING in self’s house here in Redwood City, probably a result of the 70-year-old floor heater (Self learned from the real estate agent who helped with the purchase that this house was built in 1939.  A certified antique!  Just like self!) having given up the ghost.  Self knows just what hubby will say:  We have no money!  Double up on your sweaters! Okey-dokey!

Here’s about the symposium, which Karen Llagas and Edwin Lozada helped organize.  Karen, aside from being a fab poet, has energy to the nth power.  If only self could bottle a little of that, for the days when she is shivering at her computer.  Edwin teaches at Woodside High School, apart from writing poetry and organizing and doing a gazillion other community-related work!
