Popular actor Robert Arevalo (Class '58) will read excerpts from
STORIES FROM ANOTHER TIME, a book of short stories by Benjamin Bautista
(Class' 58), at its launching on Monday, November 17, 2008, 5.30 pm,
4/F Lobby, Ateneo Professional Schools, Rockwell Center, Makati.
Commentaries on the book will be given by Gemino Abad,
Father Joaquin Bernas, and Gregorio Brillantes.
The collection includes the author's well-loved pieces whose tone and
texture "provide contemporary readers a better understanding
of an age and a generation other than their own."
Writing--without any formal training--about characters caught in the
conflicts and contradictions in their lives, Mr. Bautista has produced
stories that have been referred to as "among the finest ever written."
Mr. Bautista studied at the Ateneo de Manila where he graduated with
Honors and the Mulry Award for literary excellence. His stories won
prizes in prestigious literary competitions and are included in
anthologies of Philippine writing. With all his literary
accomplishments, Mr. Bautista pursued a career in business and
management before retiring.
STORIES is available at the LS Bookstore and other good
bookshops. Queries and RSVP for the launch: Vangie at 4265984, 4266001
