Literary Manong

I got word that poet and activist Al Robles passed away over the weekend. He was mostly known in northern California, but his work sent ripples to Fil-Am communities across the country.

I saw him read at a conference at UCLA years ago. He was known as Manong, loosely translated as Uncle. Read more about him here.

Hi Noel,

Thanks for posting this about our Manong. Would it be possible to update the link to our website to the home page?
