We have just launched our new reading theme this March-April: Fearless Females and Courageous Women.
I am happy to feature an author who has won literary recognition for the way she weaves words together, a Filipina who is now based in Berlin, Germany.
Meet the Storyteller: Catherine Torres
Catherine Torres is a diplomat and writer from Manila. Her work in the Foreign Service has taken her to postings in New Delhi, Singapore, and now, Berlin, where she lives with her husband and their son, Samuel. When foreign affairs, as well as domestic ones, permit, Catherine travels around the world on boats made of words. Occasionally, as with Sula’s Voyage, which will be published by Scholastic Asia this year, she even builds the boat herself. Her short story collection Mariposa Gang and Other Stories will also be released in 2016.
We look forward to knowing more about Cathy’s creative process and upcoming books. I am also excited to catch up with her during this year’s Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she will be launching her award-winning book.
