June 8, 2017, MANGILAO, GUAM – The University of Guam Press will launch its latest publication I Atfabeton Chamorro: An alphabetical journey through the culture of the Mariana Islands on Saturday, June 17, 2017 from 3–5 p.m. at the Two Lovers Point gift shop.

I Atfabeton Chamorro was created through a collaborative effort involving teachers, students, artists and photographers from Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. It is a visually captivating book featuring the writing of upper division Chamorro language students from the University of Guam and photography and artwork from a group of talented local artists. Each letter of the Chamorro alphabet is used to describe a significant cultural concept, story, or item, which is written about in Chamorro, English and Japanese.

Book contributors and artists will be present at the launch to discuss their work. Chamorro chesa (appetizers) will be served and both hardcover and paperback versions of the book will be available for sale.
