Vibal joins first Manila International Online Book Fair
Vibal Group is participating at the first ever Manila International Online Book Fair, which will be held from November 24 to 30, 2020.
Throughout the period, book shoppers can purchase books from different exhibitors in their respective selling pages on the website. Vibal offers Vibal Foundation books, Chikiting Books, and Self-Learning Modules (SLMs) at 15% off.
Online events are also held virtually on MIBF’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. Vibal prepared exciting book launches and a special learning session during the MIBF.
Ms. Meanne Mabesa Mijares, an author of various Chikiting Books titles, conducted an insightful and helpful talk for parents titled “Helping Our Children Survive and Thrive during COVID-19 and Beyond” on November 24, 2020 (Wednesday).
The virtual book launch of Vibal Foundation’s newest release in 2020 titled More Hispanic than We Admit 3 was also replayed on November 24 with its author, Jorge Mojarro. More Hispanic than We Admit 3 is the third volume of the More Hispanic series that features the Filipino and Spanish interactions over the centuries.
Another Vibal Foundation title Philippine Cinema, 1897-2020 will also be launched on November 30, 2020 (Monday) through a pre-recorded video. Authored by Gaspar Vibal and Dennis Villegas and edited by Teddy Co, this book is a compendium of the hundred years of the Philippine cinema history. Multi-awarded filmmaker and film historian and the writer of the book’s afterword, Nick Deocampo, will give a lecture during the book launch.
In the past years, Vibal Group has been participating as an exhibitor at the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF). This year, with the constraints brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the MIBF committee decided to hold this year’s event online to ensure the safety of exhibitors and customers.
Everyone is invited to visit Vibal Group’s page during the MIBF to get Vibal Foundation trade books, Chikiting Books, and Vibal’s Self-Learning Modules at 15% off.
