NINOTCHKA ROSCA is a Philippine-born New York-resident writer who thus refers to herself as a transnational Filipina. She had written and published seven books—short story collections, novels and non-fiction. She is also an organizer and advocate for women’s liberation and is engaged in the study and codification of the theory and practice of transnational and intersectional feminism.

Her two novels, State of War and Twice Blessed, are considered classics of modern Philippine literature, with the second receiving the American Book Award for Excellence in Literature.

5 copies of STATE OF WAR and a CD with the extended interview are available to callers who make a minimum pledge of $75. Please call 877-500-5266 to find out more thank you gifts you can receive with a donation.
