BOOK TALK: Half-Remembered Dreams of a Third World Son
- This event has passed.
March 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Half-Remembered Dreams of a Third World Son is an attempt to loosely capture the author’s thoughts, feelings, and experiences as a young Filipino migrant in the US with missing home, struggling with mental health, labor exploitation, and fighting back through engagement in the class struggle. These sentiments are sometimes vivid, sometimes blurry–like half-remembered dreams. Of course, there are much happier poems of love and belonging saved for the very last chapter
