Before the pandemic hit, bookworms and book lovers always looked forward to annual book fairs like Big Bad Wolf and the Manila International Book Fair. But because of the pandemic, these much-anticipated book fairs had to be canceled and postponed since March 2020.
Luckily, organizers of book fairs found a way to transition into a virtual event. As a matter of fact, this coming June 19 to 21, the all-Filipino Aklatan Book Fair will be happening on Shopee! (Read: 5 Inspirational Quotes From St. Ignatius of Loyola)
On Saturday through Monday, the Book Development Association of the Philippines (BDAP) will once again open AKLATAN 2021 to support local creators, authors, publishers, and writers who have been greatly affected by the pandemic.
