FWGP Opens 2012 with FILCOLS Member Ricky Lee on OpenBook

The Freelance Writers’ Guild of the Philippines (FWGP) opens the year with its first OpenBook event on January 20, 2012 in Chef’s Bistro (Scout Gandia near Tomas Morato, Quezon City). The monthly OpenBook sessions feature different authors each month, and for January it will be none other than Ricky Lee, one of the country’s most celebrated writers. Fresh from the success of his latest novel, “Si Amapola sa 65 na Kabanata,” Lee sits down with the OpenBook audience to talk about Amapola, writing, inspiration, creativity, and other related topics.

Actors Opaline Santos and Ian Lomongo will be reading an excerpt from the novel. Lalangin, a group of young musicians led by Joey Nicolas, will be providing musical entertainment for the night. Event starts at 6:00 p.m. Entrance fee of P200 includes one drink. Proceeds from this event will fund future projects of FWGP, including upcoming OpenBook sessions and ongoing efforts to send help to Sendong victims in Mindanao.

Previous OpenBook authors include Samantha Sotto (Before Ever After), Bebang Siy (It’s a Mens World), and Tweet Sering (Astigirl). Book your tickets now by calling Ime (09179378617) or Teena (09153913129).
