The conversation will revolve around Augenbraum’s translations of the novels "Noli me tángere" and "El filibusterismo" by Philippine national hero José Rizal, and Apostol’s "The Revolution According to Raymundo Mata," which won the 2010 Philippine National Book Award and has recently been republished in the U.S. Apostol is also the author of "Insurrecto," which has been included in the list of the ten best books for 2018 by the magazine Publishers Weekly.
