Here's What You Can Expect from the 38th Manila International Book Fair
The Manila International Book Fair is a bibliophile's paradise—every year publishers, bookstores, and distributors from all over converge to sell books at discounted prices. The sheer volume and variety of books can be overwhelming—this year, the fair will occupy two whole floors of the SMX Convention Center from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on September 13-17.
There will be talks and book signings by illustrious Filipino authors too. Ambeth Ocampo's talk will be held on September 13, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m at the second floor stage area, while Lualhati Bautista and Butch Dalisay's book signing will be on September 17, 11:30 a.m. at the first floor stage area. On the same date, Hamilton fans can sing their hearts out at Jamilton, which will start at 7 p.m. at Stage 2.
