Dru at ang Kuwento ng Limang Kaharian: An Art Forum & Book LaunchVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Adarna House, Asia Society, Kawi Content, and the Yuchengco Museum invite you to a forum and book launch featuring DRU AT ANG KUWENTO NG LIMANG KAHARIAN (Dru and the Tale of the Five Kingdoms).
DRU AT ANG KUWENTO NG LIMANG KAHARIAN tells the story of Dru, a feisty young girl from a sleepy fishing village, her fantastical adventure, and her struggle to make her way back home. This relatable tale takes its inspiration from both the Mahabharata and Indonesian folklore. This young adult book was written by Indonesian author Clara Ng, and was translated directly into Filipino by Nanoy Rafael.
