Lola’s House
M. Evelina Galang
Lola's House

Come for a special night featuring author M. Evelina Galang, whose new nonfiction book Lola’s House: Filipino Women Living with War (Curbstone, 2017) tells the story of sixteen surviving Filipino comfort women who survived violence inflicted by the Japanese army in World War II. Starting in the late nineties, Galang built relationships with women at Lolas’ House, a community center for women’s organizing in Manila, and records their testimony–at once intensely personal and globally political–in this searing book. Don’t miss this rare appearance by Florida-based author Galang, one of the heads of VONA. Galang will be joined in conversation with Jennine Ventura from GABRIELA USA, a transnational Filipino feminist organizing group. Moderated by Sophia Hussain, AAWW’s Programs Coordinator.
