Reposted from The Manila Times:

The Ateneo de Naga University (AdNU) Press formally launched last month 75 books that showed what the school’s top official said their unity in diversity, and that asserted its status as an important player in the country’s publishing industry.

At its “Bungsod” book launch during the 9th Philippine International Literary Festival at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) in Pasay City on April 19, the regional publishing house—which dubbed itself a “rebel press” in a video shown at the event—introduced the newest titles among the 75 it has released since its establishment in 2005.

These include the poetry collections Hunos: Mga Tula by Allan Popa, Ang Iyong Buhay ay Laging Mabibigo by Mesandel Arguelles, Mga Sugat ng Naligaw sa Gubat by Emman Velasco, Samantalang Sakop at Iniibig by Edgar Samar; the essay collections Archipelago of Stars by Gutierrez Mangansakan, Golden Kumquats in Trieste and Other Travel Essays by Alice Sun-Cua, and Romances: Variations of Love and Rebellions: Note on Independence by Katrina S. Santiago; the television-play collection Pilat ng Digma by Eli Guieb 3rd; the memoir Kapag Sumalupa ang Gunita by the late Rogelio Sicat; and the personal anthology Bamboo Girls and Other Works by Ian Rosales Casocot.

Several works of translation were also launched: Kung Sato Sana si Shakespeare by GB Calleja; Pagtuod: European Stories in Minasbate and Tigaonon by Czech Ambassador to Manila Jaroslav Olša Jr., Enrique S. Villalis, and Clinton Abilong; Paglaum: European Stories in Waray by Olša, Jerry B. Gracio, and Michael Carlo Villas; and Pagkamuot: European Stories in Bikol by Olša, Kristian Sendon Cordero, and Jusan Villaflor Misolas.
