Anvil has invited several remarkable authors to join the festival, including Jose Dalisay, an award-winning author that has published more than 35 books of fiction and nonfiction; Ambeth Ocampo, bestselling author, historian, columnist, and speaker; Jaime Licauco, considered as the country’s foremost authority on inner mind development, creative, and intuitive management, and Philippine mysticism; AA Patawaran, bestselling author of Write Here, Write Now: Standing At Attention Before My Imaginary Style Dictator, Hai[Na]Ku and Other Poems, and Manila Was A Long Time Ago; and many more.
Bliss Books authors Vixenneanne, Jamille Fumah, and Phenomenal Pen will also be present for a panel discussion, ‘Finding Your Bliss: Growing and Engaging With Your Audience’, followed by a book signing.
Anvil is also bringing literary icon Lualhati Bautista, one of the most notable novelists in the country, for a book signing session for her readers. Her books Gapô, Dekada ’70, and Bata, Bata… Pa’no Ka Ginawa have all won Palanca Memorial Awards.
