I’ve been invited to attend “Ihayag: Celebrating Fellows in Journalism” organized by Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and the Asian Center for Journalism (ACFJ) at the Ateneo de Manila University.
The program highlights the launch of a book that compiles works of graduates of the ACFJ.
Chay Florentino-Hofilena presented the book, Blood on their Hands: Infanticide in India and other stories, which is an antholology that features Master Projects of eight grad students of ACFJ. This is going to be the first of a series of books that will be launched.
At least two students were invited to read excerpts of their works.
Dibjayoti Chatterjee read a line from his “Blood on their hands: Infanticide in India,” while Arlene Burgos read an excerpt from her intriguing work “Seeing in the Dark” — a retrospective on the Angelo de la Cruz abduction.
The event was also the official debut of the next batch of ACFJ fellows expected to finish their two-year Masters in Journalism program in 2008. Yours truly were among the next batch of grads, I hope 😉
