With articles appearing in ColorLines, Alameda Magazine, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, and others, long-time local journalist and creative writer Renee Macalino Rutledge joins us in Alameda for a Launch Party in celebration of her lyrical new novel, The Hour of Daydreams. Manolo Lualhati, a respected doctor in the Philippine countryside, believes his wife hides a secret. Prior to their marriage, he spied her wearing wings and flying to the stars with her sisters each evening. As Tala tries to keep her dangerous past from her new husband, Manolo begins questioning the gaps in her stories and his suspicions push him even further from the truth. The Hour of Daydreams, a contemporary reimagining of a Filipino folktale, weaves in the perspectives of Tala's siblings, her new in-laws, and the all-seeing housekeeper while exploring trust, identity, and how myths can take root from the seeds of our most difficult truths.
