For International Women’s Day – my favorite women writers of Filipino heritage

Inspired by @shinyinfo‘s tweet:

“Do you know what would be great for International Women’s Day? Recommendations for books written by not white american women”

I read this, and I definitely agree, and I decided to share my favorite writers, who are not white American women. I also made the decision to highlight my favorite women writers of Filipino heritage. I have a special place for two women in particular as I spent a lot of time reading and re-reading two of their books for my master’s thesis back in 2005-2006. While, they have written other books (which are fantastic as well) – I’ll list the two I used for my thesis, because they inspired my thesis topic:

1. Tess Uriza Holthe

2. Cecelia Manguerra Brainard

I suggest you’d check out these writers as well, the book covers that are featured are my favorites  —

3. Jessica Hagedorn

4. Arlene J. Chai

5. Eileen R. Tabios
