entry arrow8:11 AM | A Tribute to Mom Edith

[this is a post-dated entry. please scroll below for the new posts.]

You are all invited to attend a tribute to National Artist for Literature Edith Lopez Tiempo.

This event, slated on 2 February 2007 at the Claire Isabel McGill Luce Auditorium in Dumaguete City, is sponsored by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, the Likhaan: University of the Philippines Institute of Creative Writing, and Silliman University Department of English and Literature. The tribute will showcase dances by the Silliman University Kahayag Dance Troupe, based on several literary pieces written by the National Artist. The event will also feature tributes by writers Ernesto Superal Yee, Myrna Peña-Reyes, Bobby Flores Villasis, Ian Rosales Casocot, and Vim Nadera Jr.

UPDATE: My article on the tribute appears January 29 in the Philippine Daily Inquirer. ANOTHER UPDATE: Rima Torrevillas Seamans, Mom Edith's granddaughter and daughter of Rowena, will take the place of Ernie Yee in giving the testimonial. Ernie will be in Cebu for business. Reserved tickets available by tomorrow.
