The TRoE Virtual Book Launch!


Thank you so much everyone who joined our TRoE virtual book release party via zoom and FB Live! Special thanks to Edwin Lozada & PAWA, guest readers Eileen Tabios, Ricco Siasoco and Beverly Parayno for supporting Lara Stapleton and Paloma Press, and Tony Robles, Claire Pamplin, Grace Talusan, Kimi Sugioka, Zach Linmark and Gina Apostol for the thoughtful questions & engagements.

If you missed the livestream, you can watch the recording on YouTube or FB Live (apologies in advance that this unedited version contains zoom bombed segments).

If you’re in NYC, you wouldn’t want to miss these TRoE in-person events:
“Flesh & Blood Party,” Friday 10/22, 7pm Eastern at VON 3 Bleecker St. @Bowery with Nerissa Balce & Ligaya Mishan

“The Ruin of the Human Zoo” with Sabina Murray, Gina Apostol & Zach Linmark, Thursday 11/4, 7pm Eastern at KGB Bar

Lastly, please support TRoE by asking your local bookstore to buy it or by leaving a review on Amazon. Maraming salamat!
