December 4, 2007


SCBWI Philasia presents
“The Filipino Child and
Filipino Children’s Literature”

When : 6 to 9 pm Monday 2008 January 7
Where : Somewhere in Makati, to be announced asap
Host : Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators

Lara Saguisag will explore notions of childhood and
“Filipino-ness” in Philippine literature for children,
and will focus on locally published books. She will
talk about different elements of the book, such as style,
subject choice, book covers, and even cost of books,
and see how texts and illustrations reveal our
conception of children as subjects and readers.

Bio : Lara Saguisag’s most recent book is Children of
Two Seasons: Poems for Young People (Anvil). She also
co-edited Nine Supernatural Stories (UP Press) with
April Yap. Her poems for children received the 2006
New School Writing Program Chapbook Series Award.
She is a Presidential Fellow at Rutgers University,
where she is completing her PhD in Childhood Studies.
She is a founding member of KUTING (Kwentista ng
Mga Tsikiting), a group of writers for children.

This event is open to SCBWI members and non-members,
published or unpublished writers or illustrators for
children or young adults, and those who have a keen
interest in children’s literature.

Rules : An entrance fee will be collected. Limited seats,
first come first served. The organizers reserve the right to
impose at any time rules and conditions that they deem
necessary for the safe and proper conduct of the event.

    Good job Lara! I like the concept of you using your brothers as characters in one of your children’s story. But what about you’re younger sis? Keep it up!
