“Fallen Cradle” is the title of the book which I am a part of. (View the book cover) Friends like Cathy Babao-Guballa, Alma Miclat, Agnes Prieto, Pia Cayetano are among the 22 parents who contributed to the literary anthology on their experiences of the loss of a child. Like Cathy said : “it promises to be a literary exploration of the many faces (and phases) of losing a child. ” The book is edited by award winning authors Agnes Prieto and Ricardo de Ungria.

When: May 3, 2005 at 5:30 PM
Where: Powerbooks at Greenbelt 4 , Makati Avenue
I don’t think I will ever come out with a book . Perhaps my husband will when he retires. Alma Miclat is scheduled to launch her book, “Beyond the Great Wall” , on May 5 at National Book Store, Shangrila Plaza Mall, EDSA at 6:00 PM. The book is co-authored by her husband and 2 daughters. My sister is writing a fictionalized version of the deaths in our family (my mom, dad, 2 brothers and my son). When she first approached an agent, my sister was advised to remove one death in the family because “truth is stranger than fiction”. Imagine that.
