Howto Compose A Newspaper Advertisement For Selling Your Property

Composing an appropriate cover for an essay you might have created is not a very ambitious task whatsoever, but it’s the most disregarded. Writing this type of article isn’t a simple job. For instance if I’m creating a paragraph about’ Style’. The very aim of composing this sort of composition would be to inquire and investigate. Many of us have a tendency to re write frequently, and pupils should notice that re writing, if not backtracking, is actually an organic region of the procedure — maybe not an indicator they’re creating mistakes.

Myrna J. de la Paz

From amazon.com:

“As de la Paz explains in an author’s note, this story, a reconstruction of the Cinderella story from traditional Philippine folklore, has disappeared from mainstream folklore because of Spanish colonization and Americanization. In the tale, Abadeha’s father is a fisherman, away much of the time, giving Stepmother and her daughters the opportunity to make the kind, hardworking Abadeha miserable. Abadeha has hard tasks to perform, such as weaving a tattered mat back together. Instead of a fairy godmother coming to the rescue, there are spirits who help her, and a ring she drops is found by the son of the island chieftain. The girl who can remove it from his finger, where it is stuck, will be his bride. This telling is long, but the details are evocative. The colored pencil art is pleasant but oddly generic. Although the characters are in traditional dress, there is no real feeling of time or place. Still, many libraries, especially those with a Filipino population, will want to have this on hand.

Leslie V. Ryan

“Meet the Author, Leslie V. Ryan!

She will be one of ten Pinay authors who will be honored in the
literary soiree to celebrate Women’s History Month on Saturday,
March 25. 2-6pm at the bookshop.

Leslie V. Ryan, born in Japan and raised in Papua New Guinea
and the Philippines, moved to the United States in 1987. She
received her bachelor’s degree in Legal Studies and Japanese
language from the University of California at Berkeley. Her book,
I AM FLIPPISH!, is inspired by her real-life experience of someone
telling her son that he couldn’t possibly be Irish because of the
way he looked. In response to this hurtful and confusing incident,
FLIPPISH! was born. Ryan’s hope is that more children from
multicultural families will be empowered by discovering who
they are and be able to take pride in and celebrate their ancestry.” – leslievryan.com

Tickets are available at $5.00 for students with ID, as well as for
seniors citizens, family of authors (who are featured authors at this

Herminia Meñez Coben

 Verbal Arts in Philippine Indigenous Communities Poetics, Society, and History examines the centrality of verbal art in social life and the dynamic roles of verbal artists as religious and political leaders, as guardians of tradition, as well as agents of cultural change. The subtitle highlights its emphasis on poetics and social change, poetics and gender politics, the poetics of violence, and of pacifism, tropes in social and historical contexts, and on colonialism, ethnic identity, and political power.

 ” ‘Explorations in Philippine Folklore is a major contribution to the study of folklore in the Philippines….’ These sparkling essays refelect remarkable variety, ranging from discussions of jeepney instructions to content analyses of ballads, epics, folktales, and legends. Moreover, the sophisticated discussion, informed by performance theory and feminist theory, found throught the book sets this volume apart from nearly all previous investigations of Filipino folklore…. Every serious student of the folklore of the Philippines should be required to read this stimulating and insightful set of essays.” – Alan Dundes, University of California, Berkeley
