Calling all Book Lovers: Come to the 30th Manila International Book Fair on Sept 16-20

Ever since I was old enough to be given an allowance, I would save up for this event (which usually coincides with the grand annual sale of National Bookstore). This year, it celebrates its 30th anniversary with the theme "Proud to be 30: Words Without Borders". It is sure to satisfy your craving from books ranging from biographies to graphic novels, management books to travel guides. Get your calendars out and mark this down - the 30th Manila International Book Fair will be held on 16-20 September 2009 at Exhibit Halls 1-4, SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City.

Find your inspiration and learn something new when you attend these special activities:
1. Storytelling sessions - reading and interpretative performances for kids and kids-at-heart
2. Writing workshops - creative writing (poetry, fiction, non-fiction, scripts) and business writing (creative copy, technical writing)
3. Seminars on getting published, freelance writing, intellectual property protection, etc.
4. Talks on dealing with the challenges the publishing industry faces amid the ongoing global financial crisis
5. Book Launchings
6. Live Musical Performances
7. Cooking Demonstrations

And many more!!!
