MANILA, Philippines - The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) will hold an all-day affair on Saturday, June 22, to pay tribute to the life and career of movie legend Mona Lisa (photo).

Three of her films — Giliw Ko, Sagur and Insiang — will be shown at the Tanghalang Manuel Conde for public viewing. A reception and book launch for press, friends and family will be held at the Little Theater lobby at 5 p.m.

The reception will celebrate the actress’ 91st birthday and the launch of her biography, titled Mona Lisa: A Portrait (From the Memoirs of a Grandmother), written and published by her granddaughter, Celine Fabie.

The book tells the story of Mona Lisa’s childhood in California during the Great Depression, her relationships during her early career in the ’40s, World War II in Manila, her comeback years with Lino Brocka in between her marriage and six children, and how Fabie knew her as the grandchild closest to her.

The biography is edited by Monique Francisco, Ida Anita del Mundo and screenwriter Clodualdo del Mundo Jr., and printed by ABS-CBN Publishing, Inc., with layout by Cesar Hernando and cover design by Benjor Catindig.

For details, call the CCP Box Office at 832-3704.
