Liwanag 3 - Book Launch

APICC is proud to feature and co-present the Liwanag 3 Book Launch as part of the outdoor showcase at Kapwa Gardens in the SoMa on June 5, 2021 for the 24th annual United States of Asian America Festival: Forging Our Futures - SoMa & Chinatown

The Liwanag 3 book launch  is the final phase following the re-issue of the 1st original volume in 1975.  SOMA Pilipinas is proud to release the newest entry into this series. As the original Liwanag and Liwanag 2 in 1993 amplified the voices of local, Bay Area Pilipinx American artists of those time periods, Liwanag 3 showcases and reflects upon the evolution of the Pilipinx identity of today. Liwanag 3 features a wide range of genres in poetry, fiction, playwriting, comics and graphic novels.  Visual arts include paintings, illustrations and photography.
