OCTOBER 3, 2011 UPDATE: I’m amending this post to reflect that video recordings from the 1st Filipino Reader Con have been uploaded to the official site. For the benefit of those who’d like to see the audio-visual presentations (or, you know, what we were wearing that day).
The first Filipino Reader Conference took place last Wednesday at the SMX, Mall of Asia, and it was a resounding success. For those who weren’t able to attend in-person, or for attendees who want to relive the event, Charles Tan has uploaded audio recordings of the talks and panels. You can find them here. As mentioned, you can also find video recordings here.
Here’s a list of the speakers/panelists and participants, with links to their blogs/sites as well:
- Keynote Speech: No Line on the Horizon: The Merging of Readers and Writers through Social Media by Carljoe Javier
- Putting Up and Running a Book Club–For the Fun of It! by Gege Sugue, Jason Vega, and Tata Francisco
- The Why and How of Book Blogging by Tarie Sabido (Blog 1, Blog 2, Blog 3), Charles Tan, Chachic Fernandez, Aldrin Calimlim, and Sasha Martinez.
