Honoring the Legacy of Filipino-American Writer and Poet Carlos Bulosan
Labor organizer Carlos Bulosan's novel America Is in the Heart, the semi-autobiographical story of the life and trials of being a Filipino immigrant in the 1900s, is considered a ground-breaking portrayal of the immigrant experience in the United States. He was one of the first writers to distinguish the Filipino-American voice apart from Asian American literature.
Bulosan is considered one of most prolific writers of the Filipino-American experience, with his work affecting generations of Filipino-American writers. Please join us on February 20th as we celebrate novelist and poet Carlos Bulosan.
