Debut Night!
Sarah Gambito, Joseph Legaspi and David Mura

In her poetry collection, Matadora, Gambito challenges traditional Filipina gender norms in moves as witty and fierce as her title suggests. Legaspi’s poetry collection Imago, which has been compared to Pablo Neruda, poignantly renders rites of passage into manhood. In his novel, Famous Suicides of the Japanese Empire, Mura leads us through the haunted corridors Ben Ohara’s family, as he retraces the legacy of his family’s internment.
