We are now on track of publishing the book, “Wisdom of our Filipino Fathers (Without Apology to Tim Russert),” and release it by Fathers’ Day in June 2011.


To give readers an idea of the book’s contents, here are some articles, excerpts of which will be printed in it. The articles of course will be subjected to more editing and revisions. We will include of course photographs about the Filipino Fathers featured in the book. We will request Sen. Nene Pimentel to write the foreword. Here is a partial list of the book materials:
