Brilliant Creations Celebrates World Book and Copyright Day
By Brilliant Creations Publishing Administrator
Brilliant Creations, in cooperation with Craft Time Magazine, offered a free bookmark-making workshop at the Book Fiesta, a yearly event organized by the National Book Development Board (NBDB) to observe April 23 as the World Book and Copyright Day. The event was held at the promenade area of the Quezon City Memorial Circle.
Craft Time Magazine EIC Anj Parma led the bookmark-making workshop, where bibliophiles and crafters alike turned papers and cardboards into personalized and artsy markers. At the other booths, writers and artists also shared their expertise to the attendees.
Aside from Brilliant Creations, the Book Fiesta was attended and sponsored by several institutions, such as the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHIL), Komisyon ng Wikang Filipino (KWF), and a number of book publishers and clubs.
For a Sunday event, the Book Fiesta was a success. NBDB Chair Flor Marie Sta. Romana-Cruz thanked all those who came and supported the activity.
The World Book and Copyright Day, celebrated every April 23rd, is a commemoration of some of the world’s literary geniuses, including William Shakespeare, Miguel de Cervantes, Emilio Jacinto, Nick Joaquin, and Bienvenido Lumbera, to name a few.
