Book launches, book signings, meet the authors, massive bargains and an exclusive cache of hard-to-find books are some of what you will surely enjoy when you step inside the book fair. As the country’s biggest annual book gathering event, the Manila International Book Fair is also a great opportunity for publishers and book sellers to showcase new titles and gain exposure among readers. The MIBF just gets better each year!
It is evident that Filipinos’ enthusiasm for printed books has increased in spite of the available options in digital format. There has been an outpour of new resources especially from Filipino authors on a variety of topics and genres that are relevant to our culture such as beauty, cooking, inspirational materials, and comics. As a local publisher, Church Strengthening Ministry (CSM Publishing) continues to tap and celebrate Filipino authors in their quest to share their invaluable message in print, expanding their reach to a larger audience.
CSM Publishing, the publisher who has brought to the floor the Everything P100 book sale and who has become a catalyst in bringing in more excitement to the MIBF, presents this year an All Out Blowout at booth nos. 1-5. Expect an outpour of great reads, premium items to be given away daily, and a unique selection of gift items to complete your early gift-giving checklist.

Chong’s Devoseries for kids, One True Love (Grace Koo), Righteous Wealth booklets (Rex Resurreccion), Buhay Pastor’s Wife (Corazon Cleto), My First, Second, and Third Attempts at Parenting (Steve Murrell), and Raising Up Money-Wise Kids (Chinkee Tan).
