Acclaimed book ‘Agam: Filipino Narratives on Uncertainty and Climate Change’ last week reached a new audience as the authors featured on its pages convened to help relaunch the collection at , Casa Vallejo in Baguio.
The bookshop’s co-owner Padmapani Perez, a poet and an anthropologist, wrote one of the 24 literary pieces featured in the book.
‘Agam’, first published in 2014, is a pioneering anthology of stories about climate change. Portraits by Jose Enrique Soriano taken in Tacloban — devastated by Supertyphoon Yolanda in 2013 — put a face to the narratives told in eight different Filipino languages (Tagalog, Ilocano, Cebuano, Waray, Maguindanao, Bikol, Sinama and English).
