On the occasion of the 11th Paz Marquez Benitez Memorial 
Lecture/Exhibit, the Ateneo Library of Women's Writings, or ALIWW, 
presents the exhibit Sunflowers and Road Maps: The Many Lives of Tita 
Lacambra Ayala from the 14th to the 26th of November at the Pardo de 
Tavera Room, Rizal Library, Ateneo de Manila University. 
<>Davao-based writer and artist Mrs. Ayala is best known for her 
collections of poems Sunflower Poems (1960) and Ordinary Poems (1969), 
for her literary awards in both poetry and short stories, and for her 
publishing venture that began in1981, the Road Map Series. In 1989, the 
Manila Critics Circle cited Mrs. Ayala not just for publishing the works 
of new artists from Mindanao but also for encouraging regional writing. 
It is no surprise then that the National Commission for Culture and the 
Arts (NCCA) through its Subcommission on Cultural Heritage and Committee 
for Art Galleries decided to release in 2003 a CD-ROM version of the 
Road Map Series, featuring in disc form poetry, fiction, essays, 
paintings, and drawings of various writers and artists from Mindanao.  <>
<>Her life's movement has allowed her an expanse of experiences and 
perspectives that reveal themselves in works that the ALIWW exhibit will 
highlight, including poems, short stories, paintings, and sculpture. 
Born in Sarrat, Ilocos Norte, educated in Baguio and Manila, married in 
the Los Banos cathedral to fellow writer and artist Jose V. Ayala, and 
further honed in the craft of writing and editing with magazine and 
newspaper work, Mrs. Ayala set up home, wrote, and worked in Cagayan de 
Oro, Bukidnon, Los Banos, Manila, and Davao City. The Ayalas have six 
children--Joey, David, Cynthia, Monica, Fernando, and Laura.
Please note that the exhibit will be closed to public viewing on the 
afternoon of Thursday, 17 November 2005 to allow for the welcoming 
program to be held.
