Finally, I can announce that I will have a book signing of Marcos Martial Law: Never Again in National Book Store in Trinoma this Saturday, December 3.
I hope you can come because I persuaded the country’s foremost military historian, Dr. Ricardo T. Jose, to talk on the real “War Record” of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos. This will be during the program that will accompany the book signing. Dr. Jose, who is currently the executive director of the University of the Philippines Third World Studies Program, will share what he has found out in his research, using US and Japanese archives.
Do take a video of his talk and post it on Facebook.
During the short program, you will also get to see up close the most notorious torture device used during Marcos’ Martial Law – the military field telephone converted into an instrument for electrocution, which I wrote about in the book.
The program starts at 1 PM with a brief intro from my publisher, Filipinos for a Better Philippines; short speeches from me and Alan; then a Q and A.
I will be in NBS Trinoma starting at 11:30 A.M. to start signing books up to 12:45. Then I break for the program and resume signing afterward.
I hope to see you there.
