The Biggest Bookshop in the Philippines – The Manila International Book Fair (MIBF) Opens today

The biggest “bookshop” in the Philippines is opening today and it’s only open for a few days.

Today is the first day of the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF).

I’ll be launching a new book. Ang Allowance na Hindi Bitin that I co-authored with Philip Roa. Book signing for that book is on Saturday, September 15, from 1:30pm to 3:30pm at the OMF Lit booth. See details on all the other things happening at the OMF Lit booth in their promotional email letter below.

Please also pray that my sister (also an author now) wins an award for her first book called Mourning to Morning. As some of you know, my bunso sister, Cheri Roberto, lost her bunso son (my Godson), Bruce when he was just 13 years old last May 2012 in a car accident. She turned her tears and grief into pages of a book to help and bless other people who are in grief and mourning.


This is her text to me:

Hello Friends! Today, Sept 12 is the Award Ceremonies for the Cardinal Sin Catholic Book Award. It’s such a great blessing and honor just to be a finalist for my book MOURNING TO MORNING but it would be nice to win too (smiley) Ceremonies start at 6PM at the Manila International Book Fair, SMX. Pls come and share this momentous event with me (smiley) God Bless!

If you need some cheer, come here to the MIBF.
