A great weekend is coming up, with two major events for book lovers.
First up, of course, is the Flips Flipping Pages September book discussion on Patrick Suskind’s Perfume, which I’m moderating.
We’d love to have you join us, whether you’re already a Flipper or not!
Meanwhile, another bookish event is happening over at Powerbooks Megamall…
Philippine Star’s Supreme and Powerbooks make your ideas come alive! on Saturday September 26 at 3-5 p.m in in Powerbooks Megamall. Meet popular comic creators Jomike Tejido (K-Zone’s Foldabots/Robotars) and Budjette Tan (Trese). They will share how their creations and your ideas don’t need to just stick to being only a comic book or toy. They can come alive in T.V, costumes, stories, plays, fan art etc. The possibilities for your idea to travel are infinite now! After, there will be a creation workshop by the speakers. Jomike will teach you how to make your own paper toy creature and Budjette will share some storytelling tips. The first attendees get free Foldabots Jack and Jill Chocolate Pretzels. See you and your ideas this Saturday!
Here are the event posters — real beauties!
All you have to do is send in a creative (essay, illustrated essay, audio, video, or any multimedia format) review of The Hunger Games and you get a chance to win a copy of The Hunger Games signed by Suzanne Collins (aieeee!), The Underland Chronicles (books 1 to 5) (aieeee!) and a Hunger Games shirt!
Full mechanics here.
It’s the signed copy that really gets to me… Hahaha, I haven’t joined a contest like this since the Harry Potter diorama contest on the Half Blood Prince launch (and my paper mache Hungarian horntail won, by the way!) and I really want to join.
Will brainstorm this weekend… Hopefully I have enough time until October 30 to come up with an entry!
