Lumbera to critique Ateneo prof’s book

Writer Benilda Santos will present her work, Alipato: New and Selected Poems (Salimbayan Books, 1991) with Bienvenido Lumbera as her critic, in a special literary gathering called “Conversation with Writer”. This presentation is an intellectual and verbal exchange between a critic and a writer on a particular work. It will be held on June 27, 6 pm, at the Afterwords Café/Filipino Bookstore, second floor of Bistro Remedios Circle, Malate. The event is open to the public.

Santos is the chairperson of the Department of Filipino at Ateneo de Manila University. Pali-palitong Posporo (1991) is a collection of her poems in Filipino. She also co-edited with DLWF faculty Dr. Marjorie Evasco an anthology of love poems entitled Kung Ibig Mo (1993). Lumbera is currently a professor of DLWF. His critical writings include Tagalog Poetry, 1570-1898:Tradition and Influences in Its Development (1986), Revaluation (1984, revised 1997), and Writing the Nation/Pag-akda ng Bansa (2000). He is a recipient of numerous awards, which include the National Books Awards, Gawad Pambansang Alagad ni Balagtas Award for Criticism, Gawad CCP Para sa Sining for literature and cultural research, the Ramon Magsaysay Award, and the CCP Centennial Honor for the Arts.

The DLWF (Departamento ng Literatura at Wikang Filipino) BookClub will sponsor the event, in cooperation with ABC Galleries, Filipino Bookstore and Bale Dutung .

The first session of Conversation was held last March 1, featuring writer Charlson Ong and young critic David Jonathan Bayot.
