Language, commerce and colonial history once connected the world's original global cities of Manila, Madrid and Mexico City. This  reading explores how poets in the Filipinx and Latinx diasporas refigure identity and rediscover kinship in a multicultural and postcolonial world. 

Featuring Josiah Luis Alderete, Aileen Cassinetto, Alice De Parres, Keana Aguila Labra, Kevin Madrigal Galindo

This event is proudly sponsored by the Filipino American Center at the San Francisco Public Library.
