The -ber months book lovers and enthusiasts alike are all pumped up to shop at the biggest book fair in the country, the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF). The country's longest-running book fair is back for its 40th edition on September 11-15 at SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City.
With the biggest publishing houses and bookstores down to independent publishers occupying SMX's two-floor exhibit spaces, you may think MIBF is good as it is. The event is packed with exclusive deals, new releases, workshops, meet-and-greets with your favorite authors, book launches, school and office supplies, stationeries, and other pocket activities.
If you're missing out on pop-culture conventions this year, MIBF is here to fill your need too. Returning this year is the MIBF's POP HUB: Comic Splash x Fandom Fest Vol. 2. Feast on graphic novels and novelties; get to meet comic book creators, artists, writers, and collectors along with the country’s largest fandoms. You might catch two or three cosplayers (or why not cosplay yourself?).
This year’s MIBF is looking like a homage to all things lit(erature). Being a bibliophile has never felt more exciting than this.
