entry arrow6:42 PM | Rene O. Villanueva, 1954-2007



The great Rene O. Villanueva, Palanca Award Hall of Famer, author of numerous plays and stories for children, and occasional blogger, passed away today at 2 p.m. He was 53. To sample his genius, read his one-act play Isang Dakilang Mamamayan ng Republika over at Panitikan.

[UPDATE: From Augie Rivera's text message: "Nasa Sanctuarium sa Araneta cor. Quezon Ave. po ang labi ni Rene Villanueva. Pero sa umaga ng December 8 po sa U.P. Hardin ng mga Diwata po siya ibuburol." Thanks for the info, Augie.]
