Filipino-American Rebecca Mabanglo-Mayor—whose parents did not teach her to speak or understand their native Tagalog language—uses redaction and disclosure to explore what has been hidden, even within herself, as she navigates a world where skin color, heritage, and language exert powerful and often divergent claims on identity.
Rebecca will be joined by local musicians Swil Kanim and Peter Ali so this is an event you do not want to miss!
Rebecca Mabanglo-Mayor’s non-fiction, poetry, and short fiction have appeared in print and online in several journals and anthologies including Kuwento: Small Things, and Beyond Lumpia, Pansit, and Seven Manangs Wild: An Anthology. Her poetry chapbook Pause Mid-Flight was released in 2010. Dancing Between Bamboo Poles is her first collection.
