It's Filipino American History Month! I didn't know this until @sueYAHollywood referenced books by me and my fellow middle grade author Erin Kelly on the Hollywood News Source blog. Thanks, Sue!
For #FilAmHistoryMonth, I talked about WHY @candygourlay and @erinkellytweets MG books are important & moving. https://t.co/qfmZ7fddki— Sue (@SueYAHollywood) October 9, 2016
The Filipino American community is the second largest Asian American population in the United States (19.7 percent of all Asian Americans according to a 2010 census).
In 2015, I had the privilege of appearing in the Filipino American International Literary Festival in San Francisco.
