Insurrecto is a misnomer. Revolution is a dream. #GinaApostol #Insurrecto

Definitely food for thought. #Insurrecto is the Filipino voice missing in historical narratives of US colonization of the Philippines. Humour is a type of Filipino resistance, watch out for that nervous laugh. @gapostol, you are an amazing writer and storyteller! On my reading list. #appelsalon #authorseries #ginaapostol #philippinehistory

Can you tell how thrilled we are to feature FilAm author Gina Apostol on our show. Reporter @raynershyn talked to her about her new book Insurrecto. The @nytimes called her “a magician with language who can swing from slang and mockery to the stodgy art of critical theory”.

The faces staring back at me on my cross country flights this week. . I flew with my three-year-old to California to reunite with my group of friends that had their daughters within two weeks of my own. It was joyous to see this band of girls as walking, running, jumping personalities. The last time the four were together they could barely walk, and were crawling, ambitious for freedom after tasting that bit of space that toddling can create. And it was a wonderful trip, particularly after the girls were tucked in, and the women could talk without our eyes narrowed and ears pricked to the tune of our children every second. I’m exhausted from the logistics and schedules and caretaking, though. I got home an hour ago and I’m crawling into bed to nap. . I did find solace in Hodson and Apostol during our return flight. Hodson, for her personal insights that sometimes feel like thoughts I’d have, and sometimes I get surprised by how alike we seem? There was one essay I read, “Artist Statement” that contained so much in one page that felt like me that I honestly paused and wondered if we have the same astrological sign. Is Hodson a Libra too?? Ha 😂 And INSURRECTO has been a treat that keeps my mind jumping, I love not knowing where Apostol is taking me in this journey but I’m ready to continue exploring the puzzlework of the narrative. . How was your weekend, friends? . . . #bookstagram #bookphoto #booksinflight #reader #currentlyreading #chelseahodson #tonightimsomeoneelse #insurrecto #ginaapostol
