Barbara Jane Reyes's bibliography of Filipino American Authors

I went to Barbara Jane Reyes' blog and was rewarded with a virtual mine of riches.

Poeta y Diwata
Disclaimer/please read this: this is an attempt at a somewhat comprehensive list, which I originally created in August 2006. Please bear in mind I am limited in my ability to know of every single title out there. That said, I will update this list on a somewhat regular basis, as titles become known to me. I do not include self-published books, books published by self-publishing services, and books published by vanity presses. I do not include chapbooks, e-publications, and CD’s. There are some titles that cross genre, and which I decided to place in one genre over another.

Comment from Gemma Nemenzo

Thanks, Gemma;

Thanks, Penelope, good job. 

Can you put a separate section for a Call for Reviews - 100-200 words on a Filipino authored book?

Also, please clarify that the book festival will provide authors and their publishers a venue to display their books. But we won't do the selling ourselves. They have to get their own table or, if they can't come, they can arrange with another author or organization (PAWA, FAHNS) who will be getting a table/booth to carry their books. But emphasize, "more info later."

To those who are participating in the Filipino Book Festival on October 1st and 2nd, 2011  please note.

Filipino Book Festival Blog

San Francisco Main Public Library

Next year, at about this time  (October 1 and 2) 2011, San Francisco will showcase Filipino authors and their books in a Filipino Book Festival... the first of its kind.

For the first time,  a congregation of Filipino authors  coming from the Philippines, the United States, Europe,  the Americas, Australia, Canada and other countries will be given the opportunity to display their publications, do readings, give workshops,  interact with target audiences, and be introduced to the mainstream reading public.

Now is time for Filipino authors to get out of the woodwork.  This blog is a call to all of you authors  out there of differing genres  (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, children's books, TV documentaries, Comic books, Graphics, scholarly books, history, biographies, memoirs....) to respond to this call.

Give me your book titles, bibliographic particulars, your full name, affiliation,  a book cover image in .jpg  and a few blurbs about you.  I promise that the Organizing Committee of the Filipino Book Festival spearheaded by Ms. Gemma Nemenzo, Mr. Oscar Peñaranda  and a host of sponsors, will make sure that your work will be carefully and expertly showcased.

Do follow this blog as I post new authors and their works.
