Precious Pages Corp. (PPC) is hosting the first-ever PRECIOUS PAGES BOOKFEST on December 4–6, 2020 as part of its continuing efforts to produce and publish stories for all Filipinos. Also, PPC recognizes that despite the presence of so many types of entertainment and other distractions, Filipinos still enjoy the experience of reading.
When asked why PPC chose to call the event a bookfest, founder Segundo Matias, Jr. said that it’s because this event is not just about selling books, more importantly, Precious Pages Bookfest is also about promoting reading, specifically reading progressive and impactful books.
