Academic Nook Fractured Fairytales Illustrator Sketchpad Meet the Storyteller poet's sanctum Reading Themes

Meet our Graphic Novelist, Featured Academic, and Poet for July and August

Book Artist – Graphic Novelist

For July and August, we are happy to feature the extremely talented Graphic Novelist, Paolo Jaime Fabregas and his Filipino Heroes League here at GatheringBooks. We would be doing a 2-part feature on Paolo.

With Paolo and his Graphic Novel

The first feature would be a review of and a Q and A on his recently published graphic novel and the second one would be a sharing of his Creative Journeys as a writer, theater actor, commercial model, husband, father, and so much more. Did I already mention that he is multi-talented?

Academic Nook

I am also excited to feature a very good friend of mine, my travel buddy, Professor Tuting Hernandez for our Academic Nook here at GatheringBooks.

He would be writing something in connection to fractured fairy tales – something we should all avidly look forward to reading. Tuting used to be the Chairperson of the Department of Linguistics at the University of the Philippines and is finishing his PhD at the Waikato University in New Zealand.

Poet’s Sanctum

We have also just recently launched our Poet’s Sanctum here in GatheringBooks where we would be featuring the voices of Poets who have moved us for Poetry Friday. For July and August, we are truly honored to have the 80 year old Tita Lacambra Ayala in our pages.

We have already shared Tita’s Sunflower Poems here and her Ordinary Poems being New Poems. We have done an interview with her regarding her Road Map Series which we will be sharing on Poetry Friday this coming week. So watch out for that.

Exciting times here at GatheringBooks!

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
