Jun 10, 2021 0 comments



Bibliophiles rejoice and make space for your bookshelves! The annual Aklatan Book Fair is coming this June 19-21 on the online e-commerce platform Shopee. 


Organized by the Book Development Association of the Philippines, bookworms can now indulge in the rich selection of our local literature from over 30 local publishers, both mainstream and independent, under big discounts and other great bundle deals!

The book fair is a great opportunity to support independent publishers and showcase the creative artistry of local talents often underlooked due to a lack of reach. Among these titles include Central Book Supply Inc.'s recently released Si Harriet Pat ug Ang Iyang Kalo or Harriet Pat and her Hat by Daniel Ceeline Ramonal, a children’s book written in Bisaya with English translations.


Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic, the Book Fair will once again be held online instead of the traditional way of being held at convention halls. This marks the second consecutive year to have done so. While we all long to explore through convention halls once more and freely browse through catalogues of educational and fascinating books, public health and safety should still be put into top priority.



But this shouldn’t stop us from participating in the enrichment and appreciation of our national literature. So, save up and get ready!

Included among the roster of local publishers are 19th Avenida Publishing, ABC Educational Development Center Children’s Books, Abiva Publishing, ABS-CBN Books, Adarna House Inc., Anvil Publishing, Ateneo de Manila University Press, Bookware Publishing Corp. (Duyan Books), Central Books Supply Inc., Christian Literature Crusade, Church Strengthening Ministry Inc., De La Salle University Publishing House, Feast Books (Shepherd’s Voice Publications), Far Eastern University Publications, Kasingkasing Press, Kawangis Komiks, Komiket Inc., Milflores Publishing, National Book Store Inc., New Day Publishers, OMF Literature Inc,. Precious Pages Corp., Psicom Publishing Inc., REX Bookstore Inc., San Anselmo Publications, Savage Mind: Arts, Books & Cinema (Savage Mind Bookshop), St. Matthew’s Publishing/Kahel Press, Summit Media (Summit Publishing Co. Inc.), Tahanan Books care of MRAS Book Trading, University of Santo Tomas Publishing House, University of the Philippines Press, Vibal Group Inc., Wiseman’s Books Trading Inc. and Learning is Fun (WS Pacific Publications).
