BARBARA JANE REYES shares, "This is my dinner table currently, as I'm preparing for the next couple of semesters of teaching Pinay and Filipinx Literature classes.

On the laptop: Dawn Bohulano Mabalon, 'Writing Angeles Monrayo into the Pages of Pinay History.'

In the stack of books, top to bottom:

Lysley Tenorio, Monstress.
Mia Alvar, In the Country.
Randy Ribay, Patron Saint of Nothing.
Grace Talusan, The Body Papers.
Cinelle Barnes, Malaya: Essays in Freedom.
Malaka Gharib, I Was Their American Dream.
Monica Ong, Silent Anatomies.

The little succulent plant is named Baby Yoda. And I also have an industrial strength commuter mug of Yogi ginger tea."
