 Hot Stuff: Bibliophiles Of Manila, Are You Ready For The Country's Biggest Book Fair Yet?

Bookworms are in for a big treat this September—the biggest yet from Manila International Book Fair (MIBF)! On September 12-16, MIBF will be coming for its 39th staging over at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City.

Boasting of over a hundred exhibitors across two floors, air-goers will get to take their pick from a chock full of titles from big bookstore chains, indie bookshops, local publishing outfits, as well as academic and religious publications. They’ll also find exclusive items like best-sellers, limited edition prints, stationary and school supplies. Besides books, MIBF also offers digital and multimedia publications and teaching aids. Activities lined up include book signings, book launches, meet-and-greets, tributes to local teachers, and POP HUB: Comic Splash X Fandom Fest—an event where renowned comic book creators, artists, writers, directors, editors, animators, illustrators, dealers, collectors, publishers, members of the academe, comic fans and enthusiasts can celebrate all things comic and pop culture!
