Philippine Book Festival 2024

The National Book Development Board (NBDB) is bringing together publishers, authors, artists, educators, and readers at the country's biggest traveling book festival. 

The Philippine Book Festival 2024 is from April 25-28 and will be held at the World Trade Center Manila. The event will showcase Philippine literature, culture, and arts. It also integrates education, entertainment, tourism, and shopping for everyone.

"This year, we have more authors and we bring together the best of Philippine content for the entire family. The country needs more reading spaces that encourage conversation, creation, and collaboration. Ang Philippine Book Festival ang nagsisilbing panghikayat ng NBDB sa iba pang mga organisasyon na lumahok at makiisa sa mga programang nagtutulak sa mga Filipino na magbasa dahil ang aklat ay para sa lahat," said Charisse Aquino-Tugade, NBDB Executive Director.

The event is longer this year to give ample time for teachers, librarians, and organizations to research the books they need for their schools. Similar to last year, NBDB is working closely with the Department of Education to train more than 750 book evaluators and procurement officers to scope and evaluate books for purchase for public school libraries and library hubs. Evaluators from all over the country will fly in to source educational books for students of their region. 

The Philippine Book Festival is a program that, on the one hand, is about celebrating Philippine culture, but on the other hand, encompasses our agency's long-term plans: improve access for every Filipino reader, democratize distribution, and enable our publishers and authors to keep producing Philippine books," said Chairperson Ang.

The Philippine Book Festival is from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, April 25-28, 2024 at the World Trade Center Manila. Admission is FREE.
