Last week, I took a little field trip down to the office of Tahanan Books, a publisher committed to nurturing young people's passion for learning with books that celebrate Philippine culture and history.
That's Josie, the sales manager. ~^o^~
I was excited because it was my first time at the Tahanan office and I was meeting with Tahanan editor Frances Ong to talk about the Philippine booth for the Asian Festival of Children's Content (AFCC)!
Isn't she a cutie?!
We talked about illustrations we could display. . .
Books to bring. . .
Then over "Wicked Truffled Mac n' Cheese" we talked more about the booth for the AFCC and the possibility of the Philippines hosting the AFCC one year. (Okay, okay, I admit we actually started planning it.)
If you will be at the AFCC in Singapore, May 26-29, please visit the Philippine booth. Meet authors, illustrators, publishers, and book reviewers from the Philippines! Check out our books and illustrations!
Books of wonder and delight, created by writers and artists of soaring talent and imagination. From traditional folk tales to picture books to science books. . . Acquaint yourself with the finest children's publications from leading Filipino publishing houses Tahanan Books, Adarna House, Bookmark, Lampara, Anvil, and CANVAS. The Philippine booth showcases six winners of the 2010 National Children's Book Awards as well as artwork created by the Philippine illustrators' guild Ang Ilustrador ng Mga Kabataan (Illustrators for the Youth).
SEE YOU THERE!
