Filipino ReaderCon 2013- Highlights Video

It may have taken us a while, but here finally, is the professionally produced video of last year’s ReaderCon’s highlights! The video was shot and edited by our generous volunteer Elyss Punsalan, who is not only an author but also a professional videographer. Elyss could only stay until a little after lunch, so the video covers the events until then. Nevertheless, thank you again, Elyss, for sharing your time and talents with us!

And to the rest of you, watch the video to remind you of what happened during Filipino ReaderCon 2013, and to see our answers to the question, “What Do Readers Want?”

Book & Reader Events: APRIL 2014

Hello, Filipino Readers! It’s been quiet here the past few months, since most of the Filipino ReaderCon volunteers have been getting on with their day jobs. But plenty of things are still happening in the world of reading and books!

Thus, we’re starting a new set of monthly posts here in the Filipino ReaderCon website. We’ll be posting all the reader and book events for the month that we know of and link to their pages or websites. We’ll also make sure the post for the month comes up on the first day of the month, so make sure you send us your event details at least 5 days before the end of the previous month.

So, if you have a reading or book event (reader event, book club meeting, bloggers’ meet-up, book launch, author signing, etc.) anywhere in the Philippines, in any language, offline or online, that you’d like Filipino readers to know of…

so we can post them here and let other Filipino readers know.

And here are the events for April:
