California Libaray Association (CLA) & FAL Tours

Howdy again.... Sorry (again) for the long delay in Blogs... Too much stuff to do and little time to report it back to ya...

We had a very successful poster session during the CLA Conference in Long Beach last October 28th. Met a lot of interested Fil-Am Librarians as well as others and also placed our session next to the Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA) Poster session table so that we could refer folks back and forth to each other. Worked out well. Jonathan Lorenzo our FAL Administrator helped a lot and we collected many business cards for further contact. We should soon see the emergence of an Asian/Pacific American CLA Roundtable.

November 17 the FAL hosted FREE bus tours of Historic Filipinotown (Hi-Fi). 4 busloads of students, community folks and families learned about the special locations and history that make Hi-Fi unique as an ethnic enclave in Los Angeles. In addition, a special one-day exhibition of Filipinana artifacts and collectibles were on diplay at FAL courtesy of Eloisa Borah and Florante Peter Ibanez. The exhibit included, yo-yo's, sports trading cards of Fil-Am notables, like Roman Gabriel (quarterback for the LA Rams) as well as videos and CD's of Tia Carrere and other musical groups and film stars. The Rocky Fellers - 33 1/3 LP- Killer Joe and its recent re-issue on CD were also displayed (the family pop group was probably the only Fil-Am act to appear on the Ed Sullivan Show)

I stumbled onto your blog by happy accident because hopefully you have the answer to this question. Can you recommend any books of Filipino plays or playwrights that are available online (maybe through Amazon).

I'm a FilAm playwright, director, and actor based in Orange County, California, and whenever I want to produce a Filipino play at our theater (Rude Guerrilla), I can't find any. Any suggestions?
