AMERICAN EXPAT LAUNCHES BOOK ON FINDING ISLAND HOME What started as a story of desperation turned into a beautiful transformation. Award-winning journalist David Haldane walked into the newsroom of his long-time employer, the Los Angeles Times, one day to get unceremoniously escorted right back out in a massive layoff. What followed was a long saga that landed him in a place he never imagined:
The magical Philippine island of Siargao, in Northern Mindanao, that had served as the cradle for his Filipino bride. Haldane, now a Mindanao Gold Star Daily columnist recently launched his book, A Tooth In My Popsicle, last March 7 at the Ortigas Foundation Library.
“I wrote the book to tell the story of a transformative adventure, sometimes frightening, often frustrating, occasionally hilarious, but always, I hope, entertaining,” Haldane explains. “I hope A Tooth in My Popsicle motivates other dreamers to pursue what their hearts truly desire.” The book is a compilation of short narrative essays about his experience from first inviting his now-wife to America for a new life, to the beauty of hope with two young children. Haldane’s two previous books are the award-winning memoir, Nazis & Nudists, and a short-story collection called Jenny on the Street.
When David’s not writing books, he can often be found working on his weekly newspaper column called Expat Eye. The book will also be launched in Cebu on April 12 at UP Cebu Jose Joya Gallery; in Iligan City on April 15 at MSU Iligan; and on April 21 in Surigao City at the Surigao Cultural Center.
