UST launches Baboo Mondoñedo’s first autobiographical collection

Stepping Stones coverfinalUST Publishing House announces the relaunching of Stepping Stones by painter, journalist, activist, and former fashion model Baboo Mondoñedo on March 12, 2013, 6 pm at the National Bookstore in Glorietta 1, Ayala Avenue, Makati City. The collection was first launched on March 3, 2013 in Baguio City.

The book is written according to the chronology of Mondoñedo’s life, starting from her childhood where she displayed an early inclination towards writing. She pursued this interest when she started a career as a journalist, eventually becoming a fulltime activist during the Marcos regime, and an advocate of peace during Corazon Aquino’s administration. She has found another passion in painting, which she calls therapeutic and “calming.”

Baboo Mondoñedo heads the Cordillera News Agency Foundation and is a columnist of the “Baguio Midland Courier.” She is a founding member of the Baguio Aquarelle Society, the Baguio Writers Group, and Café by the Ruins. She modeled for Pitoy Moreno during the European fashion tour in 1967. She currently lives in Baguio.

Stepping Stones is now available at all leading bookstores and at the UST Publishing House Bookstore. For inquiries and orders, please call (02) 731-3522 or (02) 406-1611 local 8252 / 8424.
