Good news, bookworms! VP Robredo says an All-Filipino bookfair will be held online
Heads up, bookworms!
Vice President Leni Robredo knows where you can indulge your love for reading and for Filipino literature, two things she supports and loves.
In a Facebook post, Robredo said the Aklatan All-Filipino Book Fair would be held on Shopee from June 19 to 21.
Since many people cannot visit brick and mortar bookstores, local publishers decided to sell their books through an online shopping site.
This would also help local publishers to earn during the pandemic while also continuing to promote Filipino literature.
Time to update your reading list!
“I am a big advocate of Reading and am a huge fan of Filipino Literature.
May magandang balita akong nasagap. Magkakaroon ng Aklatan All-Filipino Book Fair on Shopee from June 19-21. Dahil po hindi makabili ng mga libro sa mga brick-and-mortar bookstore, minabuti po ng local publishers na magbenta sa shopee. Layunin po ng bookfair na matulungan ang mga local publishers na kumita pa rin kahit pandemic mula sa local book sales. At siyempre, layunin din naming maitaguyod ang pinoy literature
