The University of Santo Tomas Publishing House (USTPH) will hold two book-signing events of its top authors on Sept. 16 at the 39th Manila International Book Fair at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia complex, Pasay City.
At the USTPH booth at 2-4 p.m., best-selling authors Joselito de los Reyes, Chuckberry Pascual and Ralph Galan will sign copies of their latest titles: “Finding Teo: Tula at Talambuhay,” “Ang Tagalabas sa Panitikan” and “Sa Mga Pagitan ng Buhay at Iba pang Pagtutulay,” respectively.
“Finding Teo” is De los Reyes’ critical biography of well-loved Filipino poet Teo Antonio, while “Tagalabas” is Pascual’s latest book of critical essays. “Pagitan” is Galan’s translations of English poems into Filipino and vice versa.
All three authors are resident fellows of the UST Center of Creative Writing and Literary Studies (CCWLS).
