Transcribing Herstory: Contemporary Filipinx Voices

Enjoy an evening of live readings from diverse Pinay voices in contemporary literature: Melissa Sipin – Elaine Castillo – Renee Macalino Rutledge – Trinidad Escobar and Janice Sapigao. Following the readings – write and share your own stories through a zine-making workshop with PAL. Instruction and materials will be provided. This program is brought to you by SFPL – SFMOMA Public Knowledge – and PAL / The Pilipinx American Library.
PAL / The Pilipinx American Library is a mobile – non-circulating library that celebrates print histories and collects narratives by writers – poets – artists – and scholars across the diaspora. PAL centers the Pilipinx American experience through the reading and sharing of texts and other printed matter in public – through pop-up libraries – performances – and readings.

Public Knowledge – the newest branch of the San Francisco Public Library – is a partnership with SFMOMA – created to explore how contemporary art and culture can illuminate important issues and create spaces for new conversations.
