This is an ever-growing list of material that has enriched my thinking throughout the project.  Fiction, non-fiction, art works and exhibits, interviews, performances and music are all included.  Works from Filipinx minds are marked with an asterisk (*).  Salamat to all these writers, editors, artists, creators, for their work, insights and stories.
