News Update on PALHBOOKS - 2/21/21
Cecilia Brainard here, writer editor and publisher of PALH or Philippine American Literary House.
We've taken the time during this pandemic to publish the hardcover edition of Growing Up Filipino: Stories for Young Adults. Through the years, the book has been pirated and sold illegally in hardcover form. We finally took the time to publish a hardcover for this book. Look for it and please recommend it to your librarian.
PALH has also published softcover US paperback Editions of two fine anthologies that were originally published in the Philippines: Fiction by Filipinos in America and Contemporary Fiction by Filipinos in America. These are available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other online bookshops. Ingram and other distributors carry these titles. These books are excellent collections of short stories by Filipino and Filipino American authors and deserve to be in American libraries.
Further PALH has published US paperback editions of Cecilia Brainard's books: Woman with Horns and Other Stories, Acapulco at Sunset and Other Stories, and Magdalena. You can find these books easily in Amazon or Barnes and Noble, and other online bookstores. Ingram and other US distributors list these books as well.
PALH will soon have the US paperback edition of Cecilia Brainard's third novel, The Newspaper Widow and her Selected Short Stories. Look for them.
Here are additional information of interest about our other books:
PALH’s titles include:
Linda Ty-Casper’s A River, One-Woman Deep, Stories, of which World Literature Today’s Nota Bene section reviewed: “In this collection of stories, Filipina American Linda Ty-Casper runs her finger along the scars left behind in the wake of historical events in the Philippines parsing out what it means to live through and after the trauma of dictatorships and war.
Ty-Casper’s A River, One-Woman Deep: Stories is also published by the University of Santo Tomas Publishing House in the Philippines.
PALH’s author of Benedicta Takes Wing and Other Stories, Veronica Montes, recently won the Black Lawrence Price for their Black River Chapbook Competition. Her debut collection of 14 stories, Benedicta Takes Wing and other Stories, has been praised as stories that explore the intricate workings of Filipino families as they struggle to define their place in the world.
Thanks for your time, and I’m hoping you will support the work of Philippine American Literary House so it can continue fine Filipino and Filipino American books. Look for palhbooks.com or in Facebook, search Philippine American Literary House.
