National Bookstore's The Philippine Literary Festival 2015

Every year National Bookstore announces a Literary Festival. It is the day wherein they showcase authors and literature on how they shaped our lives and imagination; the way boundaries are widened. That is why I am excited to know that National Bookstore will bring two Bestselling authors!
