The Cultural Center of the Philippines will hold an all-day affair on June 22, Saturday, to pay tribute to the life and career of movie legend Mona Lisa. Three of her films (“Giliw Ko,” “Sagur”and “Insiang”) will be shown at Tanghalang Manuel Conde for public viewing, and 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.
