Hello AACP Blog Readers.

The September newsletter is now linked to this page. Apologies for taking so long to do that. Have a look.

October is Filipino American History month, as such we have an article about Larry Ramos, member of the folk group The New Christy Minstrels and pop/rock group The Association. Larry Ramos is also the first Asian American to have won a Grammy Award for his collaborative work on The New Christy Minstrels’ first album.

A note for our email subscribers that may have read this article when it first came out – I added a few link at the end including some more YouTube videos of Larry Ramos’ performances. Definitely worth checking out.

If you are in the Seattle area, it’s not too late to catch a series of programs at the Seattle Main Library honoring the 100th birthday of author John Okada. Have a look at the press release for the programs.

For our featured books, we have 12 books that are sure to get you in the mood for Halloween. As usual we also feature some great children’s books and two books for Filipino American history month. Please check them out.

Filmmaker and author Marlene Shigekawa has informed us about the premiere screening of her new film “The Blue Jay” this coming Sunday (October 29, 2023). To learn more about the film and to sign up for the free screening, go to the following Eventbrite site.

That’s all for now.

Take care.
