Bookfair Website and Special Events

The 26th Manila International Book Fair, as many already know, will be held at the World Trade Center, Buendia cor. Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City, Metro Manila, from August 31 to September 4, 2005, 10:00 A.M. – 8:00 P.M. But what many don't know—perhaps because the website was only put up recently—is that the book fair actually has a website with a list of exhibitors and a floor plan.

The list of special events is also available. But if you would like a hard copy, check out the ad in the August 22 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, page B10.

The following are the events I wish I could attend and/or are sponsored by library associations:
