LITERARY FESTIVAL. Award winning poet and book author Kristian Cordero (rightmost) meet up with Naga City Mayor Nelson Legacion (center) and City Councilor Joe Perez to discuss an invitation for Naga to host the Philippine International Literary Festival in April next year. Chair Flor Marie Sta. Romana-Cruz of the National Book Development Board said moving the festival away from Manila makes it more accessible to more authors and readers, and creates the perfect opportunity for regional writing and publishing to be at the center of the discourse. PILF serves as venue for authors, illustrators, publishers, and readers to discuss the latest trends and innovations in literature and publishing with international and national authors in attendance.
