For two days this November, different artists, performers, thinkers, musicians, writers, readers and book lovers of all ages will assemble for the First Libros Festival. This is in celebration of the National Book Month and also in preparation for the coming Christmas season. The affair will display books from local and international publishers and other education-related products and services. A line-up of events will be featured to benefit the OurLibrary project of the Filipinas Heritage Library. One of the highlights of this event is the FREE Book Writing Workshop which will be on November 24 from 5-7PM at the Filipinas Heritage Library, Makati Ave., Makati City. Dr. Isagani Cruz, a multi-awarded author, will discuss everything that a writer should know from the basics of choosing a book title, to publishing and selling a book. Plus, he will share how to put your thoughts into writing, down to the store shelves. This is a first come first served basis so call or text Tina at 0917-3884772 as early as possible.
