29th Manila International Book Fair

Dear Me,

I am so looking forward to this event. It's time to splurge again (as if I haven't been doing that for months)!

Hear ye, hear ye! The 29th Manila International Book Fair will be happening a month from now. This will commence on the 12th day of September, 2008. This 'fantabulous' event will run till the 16th day and will take place at the SMX Convention Center at the SM Mall Of Asia (MOA) at Pasay City.

The MIBF themed as
"The Word Without Borders" is regarded as the only internationally-acknowledged book fair in the country. In this event, publishers, booksellers, authors, artists and bibliophiles (like yours truly) will gather once again to promote and celebrate the reading awareness of each Filipino - you and me, alike.

This book fair will exhibit all types, volumes, collection and genres of books - literature, school textbooks, general references, religious/inspirational titles, self-help books, management books, Filipiniana, coffee table books, popular novels, children's books, art books, graphic novels, hard-to-find books, magazines, audio and e-books, multimedia, travel-related books.

Activities are also lines up such as interaction with established and new authors, special forums, writing workshops, poetry readings, story-telling, series of lectures/forums on books of various topics.

For current list of exhibitors: here.
