In partnership with the Varsitarian, the UST Center for Creative Writing and Literary Studies (CCWLS) celebrated the sixth of its author series featuring two of the CCWLS resident fellows, Mr. Joselito Delos Reyes, PhD and Mr. Chuckberry Pascual, PhD, and their latest books entitled “TROYA: 12 Kuwento” and “PAGPASOK SA EKSENA: Ang Sinehan sa Panitikan at Pag-aaral ng Piling Sinehan sa Recto”, respectively, last February 28, 2017 at the Tanghalang Teresita Quirino, Benavides Building.
In 2013, Delos Reyes’ Troya: 12 Kuwento, published by Visprint, Inc., bagged the National Commission for Culture And Arts Writers’ Prize for short story in Filipino. Delos Reyes was named as the 2013 Makata ng Taon of the Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino.
Part of the University of the Philippines College of Mass Communication Book Series is Pascual’s “Pagpasok sa Eksena”, published by the UP Press, a study that features the effects of literature and ethnography, as well as an exploration of selected cinemas in Manila.
This author series in a form of conference is a niche for both the resident fellows and for the students to exchange ideas, nurturing the reading culture in the University. Delos Reyes and Pascual are faculty members of the Department of Literature.
