The2nd Filipino American
International Book Festival
The Philippine American Writers and Artists (PAWA) in cooperation with
the San Francisco Public Library and the Philippine Consulate General
of San Francisco invite you to celebrate the best of Philippine and
Filipino American literature and culture at the San Francisco Main Library at
the Civic Center on Saturday, October 19 and Sunday, October 20.
Like the highly successful Filbookfest I also held at the San
Francisco Main Library in 2011, which garnered a Certificate of Honor from the
City and County of San Francisco for being a milestone event for the Filipino
American community, Filbookfest II will once again showcase the
richness of Philippine culture through books, the visual and culinary arts, and
The two-day festival will feature author readings and signings, book sales,
food samplings, lectures, and panel discussions. Also being arranged is a
return performance of the balagtasan, an entertaining debate in poetry
that is unique to the Philippines and was a big hit in the 2011 book festival.
More details will be forthcoming. Filbookfest II will be open and
free to the public so please spread the word to your networks.
For authors who have published books in 2012-2013 and would like to do a
reading and signing at Filbookfest II, please write us at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Give us
your name, contact information, a brief bio, book title, publisher and a
description of your book.
