Now on its 3rd year, the Filipino ReaderCon had become the perfect venue for Filipino bookworms to converge and celebrate the love of reading in the country as well as acknowledge distinguished Filipino literature through the Readers’ Choice Awards.
With the theme, “What do readers want?”, this year’s FilReaderCon will be held at the Ateneo de Manila University Loyola Schools Rizal Library on November 9, 2013. This one-day affair will feature various discussions that revolve mainly on the booksellers, authors as readers, the digital Filipino readers, and various other topics.
Various book clubs were also invited to conduct book discussions. Pinoy Reads Pinoy Books (PRPB) for its part—will be discussing Filipino award-winning author Edgar Calabia Samar’s Walong Diwata ng Pagkahulog.
In line with this, we’d like to invite everyone to participate in our book discussion which will run from 3:05PM and will end at 3:50PM as the PRPB family prepared a lot of surprises for its audience as well as future members (yes, we are claiming it!).
You guys can also drop by our booth in the exciting and very informative Book Reco Fair where we’ll hand out a list of all our favorite books, and at the same time, talk and interact with all the event participants.
So, come and join us to learn more about Pinoy books and why we love our very own. (Who knows, you might fall in love with Filipiniana too?)
