NCBD Week: Bumasa at Lumaya

This week is the busiest for the month-long celebration of the National Children’s Book Day, which is celebrated every third Tuesday of July to commemorate the anniversary of the publication of Jose Rizal’s “The Monkey and the Turtle” in Trubner’s Oriental Record in London. With the theme,“Bumasa at Lumaya,” the NCBD events are organised by the Philippine Board on Books for Young People (PBBY). And here are three things we can do to support the events.

On Tuesday, the grand prize winners and honourable mentions of the annual PBBY-Salanga Writer’s Prize and the PBBY-Alcala Illustrator’s Prize will be awarded in a ceremony at the Cultural Centre of the Philippines. (XZN will also feature this week winners Genaro Gojo Cruz and Mark Lawrence Andres.)

Part of this event too is the awarding of the 3rd National Children’s Book Awards (NCBA), which recognises the excellent works of children’s book creators, done in partnership with the National Book Development Board.

 

Book Fair and Talks

The Xavier School in San Juan will host the Book Fair and Children’s Literature Talks on the 23rd. The fair shall feature local children’s book publishers. Aside from selling selected titles at a discounted rate, publishers will also hold simultaneous storytelling sessions. A special package of all winning NCBA titles, from 2010 to 2016, may also be purchased at the fair.

The culmination of the NCBD celebration is the Children’s Literature Talks. The program will start with the book launch of Bumasa at Lumaya 2, a Sourcebook on Children’s Literature in the Philippines. This whole-day event will also be a gathering of writers, illustrators, students, storytellers, teachers, librarians, and parents. For a registration fee of PHP800.00, participants may choose to attend among discussions on writing sensitive stories, body positivity on young adult fiction, the evolution of children’s book illustrations, raising multilingual readers, and more.

Si Janus Sílang at ang Tiyanak ng Tábon

JanusSilang_blogtour

Subaybayan mula Abril 27 hanggang Mayo 3 ang blog tour ng Si Janus Silang at ang Tiyanak ng Tábon, ang pinakabagong aklat ng batikang manunulat na si Edgar Calabia Samar. Inilimbag ito ng Adarna House, Inc. ngayong 2014.

Blurb: Sa tournament ng TALA Online sa bayan ng Balanga, namatay ang lahat ng manlalaro maliban kay Janus. Sunod-sunod pa ang naging kaso ng pagkamatay ng mga kabataan sa computer shops sai ba’t ibang panig ng bansa. Kinontak si Janus ng nagpakilalang Joey, isa rin umano sa mga nakaligtas sa paglalaro ng TALA na gaya niya. Hindi inasahan ni Janus ang mga matutuklasan niya mula rito na mag-uugnay sa kanya sa misteryo ng kinahuhumalingan niyang RPG—at sa alamat ng Tiyanak mula sa Tábon!
