Patty Enrado Book Launch 


A Village in the Fields, A Novel

 
at Eastwind Books of Berkeley, 2066 University Ave.

In her debut novel, Patty Enrado highlights a compelling but buried piece of American history: the Filipino-American contribution to the farm labor movement. 50 years ago, September 8, 1965, Filipino farm workers walked out of the fields and sparked the United Farm Workers Union movement.  To write this novel, Patty Enrado researched and interviewed Filipino farm laborers who were involved in the labor movement including her own family members.  This intricately 
detailed story of love, loss, and human dignity spans more than eight decades and sweeps from the Philippines to the United States. In the vein of The Grapes of Wrath, A Village in the Fields pays tribute to the sacrifices that Filipino immigrant farm workers made to bring justice to the fields.
