I’m a bit late on this, but I’d like to remind everyone that the annual Christmas sale of Ateneo de Manila University Press is ongoing:
Date: November 15 to December 14, 2011
Time: 8 A.M. to 12 noon, 1 to 6 P.M., Monday to Thursday
8 A.M. to 12 noon, 1 to 5 P.M., Friday
Venue: Ateneo Press Bookshop, G/F Bellarmine Hall, Ateneo Campus, Katipunan Avenue, Loyola Heights, Quezon City
All titles will be sold at less 10 to 50 percent.
Coffee, tea and Christmas cookies come free with browsing. Happy book shopping!
This is a good time to mention that Ateneo Press publishes some amazing books, including “Verbal Arts in Philippine Indigenous Communities” (here’s a review), an excellent overview of the diversity of our oral traditions by Professor Herminia Meñez Coben–who graciously allowed me to interview her for Alternative Alamat–as well as “Kathang-Isip“, a book of speculative fiction in Filipino, which I think may only be available at the Ateneo Press store (I haven’t seen it anywhere else). The deals during this sale are usually much better than those given during the Manila International Book Fair, so if you’ve had your eye on an Ateneo Press title, now’s the time to get it.
