“Like every April 23, Instituto Cervantes, the cultural arm of the Embassy of Spain, will once again be abuzz with cultural and fun activities to celebrate the “Día del Libro” or the International Book Day.
Around 4,000 book titles will be gathered around its premises at the Ayala Triangle in Makati City. As in previous years, “Día del Libro” will feature top bookstores and publishing houses that will be selling a wide array of books at a 20-percent discount. Following the tradition in Spain, every book purchase would entitle one to a free rose…
….Apart from the book market, visitors will also be treated to poetry recitals, dance performances, plays, concerts, as well as activities for the children, like puppet shows. One of the main features of the day will be the inauguration of a pop-up library –“The Book Stop.”
The project, designed and built by WTA Architecture & Design Studio, is a non-profit library for the entire community, where visitors can interact in lively discussions with fellow readers and share their love of books, borrow volumes for free, and exchange books. The goal here is reinvention, reinvigorating, and re-establishing the library in Filipino society.”
