This is the first book written about Larry Itliong.

Co-author Gayle Romasanta will talk about the book writing process with Dr. Mabalon, sign books and show rare video of Dr. Mabalon talking about the importance of Larry Itliong's work. Books, merchandise and of course The Park's Finest BBQ will be available for purchase.
