In 2011, a young group of book lovers, writers, bloggers, and reading advocates came together and organized the first-ever Filipino Reader Conference. This event gathered a variety of people who had one thing in common–a deep love of books and reading, where Filipino readers can talk about anything and everything about books and be around all sorts of reading materials that they can enjoy.
Book lovers unite! Readers celebrate a love of words and stories at the 7th annual Filipino Reader Convention, for the first time ever in Cebu City. The theme this year? Young, Scrappy and Hungry: Reading Our Way to Activism!
Come to the Atrium at Mango Square Mall on November 18, 10am-8pm, to buy books and fan merchandise, meet authors, attend panels on Young Adult (YA) fiction and romance, be thrilled by live readings, join a book swapping activity, and, to cap it off, a Jamilton production where fans of the hit Broadway musical Hamilton can sing and rap along to their fave numbers. The event is free, but register for just PHP 50 for the chance to get free books, raffle prizes, and more!
