Journalist and poet Paskie Pascua served as member of the media liaison staff for the late president Corazon Aquino’s “good government” commission in early ’90s and was a media specialist in coastal villages and farming barrios in his home country, the Philippines. But in Asheville, he is best-known as the publisher and editor of community paper The Indie, and the executive director of arts organization Traveling Bonfires. All of these experiences are reflected in Pascua’s new collection of prose and poems, Red Is the Color of My Night. He’ll launch the book (and his reading tour) at North Carolina Stage Company as part of the Altamont Poetry Series on Monday, May 19, at 7:30 p.m. ncstage.org.
