A fair-ly huge thank-you!

Adarna House would like to give a big thank-you to all those who came to the Manila International Book Fair to support local publishing.  Hundreds of Filipino — and international — publishers and book distributors participated as exhibitors in the Fair and thousands of book lovers from all over the country came to the SMX Convention Center to take part in this once-a-year book event.  

Thank you to the schools who went to our booth for their field trip — Curious Tykes, Don Bosco Mandaluyong Book Club, CBC Child Learning Center, Raya School, The Growing Place, and GK Botocan Sibol Program.  We hope you enjoyed listening to our storytellers and meeting our authors and illustrators!

Thank you to the authors and illustrators who came over and lovingly signed books for our guests — Rhandee Garlitos, Hubert Fucio, Augie Rivera, Beth Parrocha-Doctolero, Mark Salvatus, Liza Flores, Dok Luis Gatmaitan, Russell Molina, Alice Mallari, Iyo Agtuca, Totet de Jesus, May Tobias-Papa, Serj Bumatay, and Robert Magnuson. 

Thank you to our storytellers — Tony, Lyn, Ada, Myra, and Lara — for sharing their love of reading with us and with the kids who were at the booth.  (And congrats to Tony, Dyali, and Claude for their big wins at the recent Salaysayan!)

Thank you to those who participated in the Book Trail — Bayard Assumption, Ibon Foundation, OMF Literature, National Book Development Board, New Day Publishers, UP Press,  and the SM Leisure Center.  We hope to work with you again next year for an even more effective campaign.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, to every single person who was there at the Fair!  It brings us so much joy to be in the sure company of people who share our passion for books and literature.  We hope to see you all again next year!

See you at the MIBF!

We hope you come and support the local publishing industry in the upcoming Manila International Book Fair.  It will be held from September 12 to 16, 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM, at the SMX Convention Center in the Mall of Asia Complex.

All the significant Philippine publishers and bookstores will be there, selling their books at a discount.  There will also be workshops presented by the Philippine Board on Books for Young People.  The exhibit of 25 life-sized sculptures of children’s book characters will also be there.

Of course, please don’t forget to visit the Adarna House booth, where you’re sure to find your favorite authors and illustrators, along with our new titles for 2008.  Tag some kids along as well, because we have a magic show, storytelling sessions, and mascot appearances lined up for them!
