Better mark your calendar for the 29th Manila International Book Fair.

It will be held at the SMX Convention Center at the Mall of Asia complex on September 12 to 16 from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm daily.

Besides getting discounts on hundreds of titles, there will also be planned events to give the public a chance to interact with some popular and promising upcoming authors. There will be features as well on the most promising books published in the past year, including a special forum on books on Philippine regional literature, education, politics, religion, family, psychology, philosophy, the social sciences, business and technology.

In addition, there will be opportunities to listen to daily poetry readings and storytelling, hear writers tell their stories, and attend the series of writing workshops offering help and advice on writing for adults and children.

For more information about the event, please call 896-0682 or 896-0661.

I very much appreciate my articles and photos appearing on fellow bloggers' sites, popular broadsheets, and local broadcast news segments, but I would appreciate even more a request for permission first.
Thank you!

I was so upset I missed last year's, Traveler, that I decided to post about this year's as soon as I find out about it. And so here it is -- an early reminder for myself and all our fellow bloggers.

My pleasure!

This looks like a must see happening especially for book lovers. I would really enjoy a storytelling or a poetry reading session.

Are you going?

I attended its 2006 event, missed last year's, and will definitely go to this year's, Photo Cache! This is a once a year opportunity to find under one roof the titles unavailable at local bookstores :)
