ANAK is pleased to announce that its affiliate, ANAK Publishing Worker Cooperative Ltd., will be launching 2 books in December 2011. Both works are based on oral history interviews collected from the Filipino-Canadian community in Winnipeg. The first book From Manila to Manitoba: Celebrating 50 Years with the Filipino-Canadian Community in Winnipeg, 1959-2009 will elaborate on information, research, and artefacts collected for the popular museum exhibit held last summer 2010. The second book, Sandok, a cookbook containing regional Filipino recipes, ethnographies, and personal narratives of the community's flourishing restaurant and bakery industry will also be featured.
"ANAK Publishing aims to fill the gap that exists for Filipino-Canadian works in Canada. In doing so, we hope to provide a local voice, local jobs and support for local scholars, writers and artists. We believe in providing quality works and are honoured to work with such a strong network of academics. These works are the first of many to come!," says ANAK Publishing.
