If you are going to be in Manila, The Philippines, on Feb 3 and 4 2007, make sure to check out the Read or Die Convention.
Organized by the Read or Die book club (named after a famous Japanese anime and manga), RodCon is The Philippines’s first ever book and literary convention, and promises many fantastic things for literature enthusiasts and bookworms everywhere. Among the many things available are:
- Various panels, from lectures to discussions, book signings to launches
- Literary-related exhibits, such as rare books from the likes of Neil Gaiman and Salman Rushdie, or vintage comic book illustrations
- Film screenings of movies based on books, such as Pride & Prejudice and About A Boy
- The first-ever Pinoy Readers’ Choice Awards, giving awards in fiction, non-fiction, comics, and poetry
- Portrait of the Filipino as Reader, a photography competition
- Read This!, a customized postcard project involving local artists
- Lotteries, book auctions, quizzes, Bingo, and other fun games
- Sales of all kinds of books, of course!
Tickets range from P150 to P400, with rates for students and professionals, and can be obtained from all Powerbooks outlets, Booktopia, Aeon Bookstore, and the Ateneo University Press. All proceeds from RodCon will go to the AHON Foundation, which aims to develop elementary public libraries all over the Philippines.
RodCon takes place February 3 and February 4, 2007 at the Hotel Intercon (Ayala Avenue, Makati City, The Philippines), and opens from 9 am to 8 pm daily. AirAsia flies to and from Clark, Manila regularly, with tickets ranging from RM100 – RM200.
If you can’t attend, there are also many other ways to support RodCon – business sponsorships, affiliations, or monetary donations.
I am acquainted with one of the organizers of RodCon and have observed her tireless and determined nature to bring RodCon to life – truly fascinating! If you have the means, please support RodCon any way you can; events like these will inspire other similar events around the region to come up and flourish. We need to support those that are starting out, so that they can lead the way for more.
