45,000/- Provision for On-line renewal of PBBY
The program is especially significant because the PBBY
will pay tribute to one of its pioneer members who served many long years as board member, the late Gloria F.
Speaking on the transfer of funds, Marwa Al Aqroubi, President of the UAEBBY, said: "We are very pleased with the smooth and successful transfer of funds, and that the PBBY
and ASCHIANA organisations will be able to start working on their projects right away.
If I may say so, it is an eye-catching production, with book design and art by PBBY
member Ruben de Jesus.
Joining them were MJ Cagumbay Tumamac, author of Ngumiti si Andoy; poet and fictionist Kristian Cordero; Edgar Samar, author of the Janus Silang series; and illustrators Ruben de Jesus, Rommel Joson and the 2015 PBBY Salanga Prize honorable-mention winner, Cheeno Marlo del Mundo Sayuno.
Highlighting the summit was the awarding of the 2015 PBBY Salanga Prize to Sayuno and the 2015 PBBY Alcala Prize to two honorable-mention winners, Joffrey Z.
Take note of the date because the Museo and PBBY
have a book fair, a special workshop for librarians to be run by Zarah Gagatiga, Beacon Academy's librarian and PBBY
member, on the school library's role in the development of life skills.
