My books, my #dogs, and I live on this couch now. This is @badbitchboba ‘s way of helping me finish a minor in #AsianAmericanHistory #americaisintheheart #carlosbulosan

It is quite an honor to be invited to be a guest speaker for the CBBC (Carlos Bulosan Book Club) at the Echo Park Library in Los Angeles, CA, Sat. January 19 @ 1pm. This will be the second time I'll be sharing contents of the 2nd book I've been writing tentatively titled: "Recuerdos/Souvenirs: An Immigrant Artist's Detour into the Land of Carlos Bulosan" (the first time was during the closing reception of my one-man show last year at the Pinta Dos Art Gallery in LA). Like Bulosan, I immigrated to the US at 17 years old and never changed my Philippine citizenship. After WW2, Filipino "nationals" in the United States was granted US citizenship, but had to physically apply to become a citizen. Carlos Bulosan never applied and remained a citizen of the Republic of the Philippines. Thankful that our generation can stand upon the shoulders of titans such as Carlos Bulosan and Larry Itliong, which will enable artivists such as myself to build upon the major chapters they have already written in the American cultural landscape; and return to the Philippines from the Land of Lincoln/Carlos Bulosan, in order to begin a second life in the Land of Jose Rizal. 🇵🇭🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇵🇭🌠🏝 Link to CBBC: https://www.facebook.com/pg/carlosbulosanbookclub/about/ #artiststalk #artbook #autobiography #bookclub #carlosbulosan #eliseoartsilva #lacityhall #americaisintheheart
