Salim Omar Salim, Director of Sales and Marketing at SBA, noted the importance of connecting with global publishers, and that of MIBF
Co-authors of young adult 'Burn for Burn' trilogy Jenny Han ('To All the Boys I've Loved Before' series, 'The Summer I Turned Pretty' series) and Siobhan Vivian ('The List,' 'The Last Boy and Girl in the World') will be having the last stop of their Philippine book tour at the MIBF
Be sure to check out books by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian, who will be at the MIBF
today for the last stop of their Philippine book tour.
Aiming to facilitate and promote exchange between authors, publishers, all those professionally concerned with books and all responsible for reading and culture in all countries the MIBF
2012 is a landmark for the introduction and announcement of a book, and opening updating channels before publishers from different parts of the world to realise the cultural and knowledge exchange through books movement and recognise the latest customs of writing and technology in the field of publishing and distribution.
The queue to the cashier was kilometric and snaked throughout the bookstore's entire section, which was one of the biggest at the MIBF
You're at the MIBF
and, whoa, look at all those beautiful books
If the lure of discounted bestsellers isn't enough, the MIBF
this year also has book signings, meet-and-greets, arts and crafts workshops and demos, forums and talks on all sorts of book- and nonbook-related topics, storytelling sessions, book launches, games and contests, and many other activities.
More local and international publishers are joining this year's MIBF
, including Abiva Publishing House Inc.
They will scour the whole MIBF
area just to look for a book.
Four authors flown in by National Book Store for MIBF
include new adult sensations Colleen Hoover, Tarryn Fisher, and Christine Brae, a New York-based Filipino author writing under a pen name.
With the growing needs of the burgeoning market, the MIBF
remains steadfast in giving the Philippine book industry a venue to close the gap.
But my experience at last year's MIBF
taught me a lesson.
