There’s no stopping National Children’s Book Day

By

Typhoon “Glenda” may have temporarily upset all plans for the 31st National Children’s Book Day (NCBD) festivities on the third Tuesday of July, but booklovers like the Philippine Board on Books for Young People (PBBY) are never that easily discouraged.

Brother Armin’s love story

By

It was an unusual morning of launches at last week’s “Booklatan sa Eskwela: Tuloy ang Basa” at the Makati Elementary School Library Hub.

World Book & Copyright Day goes to Bonifacio High Street

By

It has been 18 years since the Unesco (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) selected a day—April 23—for countries around the world to celebrate the power of books and build a culture of reading and authorship.

Tacloban children not ‘forgotten victims’

By

As I must have mentioned in the past, the only daily e-mail blast I welcome is the faithful Google Alert bringing news about books and the love of reading. There are not too many books on the topic to make a daily bulletin, so the Alerts are mostly on the efforts of concerned citizens or private and public library systems to keep the habit of reading alive—and loved.
