Since its publication in 1911, Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden has continued to charm readers from generation to generation. Readers have become acquainted with Mary, Dickon, and Colin, and have become part of their adventures in reviving a decade-old garden which wilted through neglect. This book covers so many themes such as self-discovery, self-care, and care for others, that our team have decided that this book will jump-start the first of (hopefully many) Book Club discussions, starting on July! We are excited to invite you to our discussions, which will be online, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Interested participants can sign up here, and we will be providing you email updates with regard to schedules and things! We’re so, so excited to have you on board! Image credit here.
The Friday Book Club supports the Otucan Fun Run 2, an activity set by the Igorot Trailer Runner group. The Fun Run is an outreach run which is supported by many partners, one of them being our very own The Friday Book Club! 🙂 The event will take place on June 30, 2018, Otucan Sur, Mountain Province, Northern Luzon. Confirmation of attendance or participation is only until Friday, 15 June. For further information, you can drop by this Facebook group page, or this event info. See you there! 🙂 Image credit: Igorot Trail Runner

Sorry for the radio silence, but again, we’ve been busy with so many activities. We’ve had four major activities: the Art in the Park (aka Young At Art) story telling and mini-art workshop, which had a huge number of participants! The team takes its hat off to Joana Verdeflor–our awesome founder, with her team of storytellers and artists–Paula Czarina Potencia, Blew David, Marvic Therese Villoso, Melissa Basmayor, Joanna Rechelle Fungo, among a few in making this activity possible. This activity was held in Luneta Park, Manila, last November 25. We’re sharing some snaps from that lovely November afternoon. The artwork the children made was turned into card art! We all loved their work, and thought it was only right to feature their art in greeting cards that we sold at the Better Living Through Xeroxography (BLTX) event that was held in December 15. To promote this event, a promotional poster was produced by our very own Joana! 🙂 Since not all of us could be there, Joana’s shared some of the event’s (best) memories. And …
Please don’t be shy, follow our Twitter account, and say hi! 🙂 We’re all about communicating with like minded people–people with a passion for books and reading–and spreading the light of that love to children who have limited access to books and learning. We would also like for you guys to watch out for posts because we might put in new stuff like live book discussions, or maybe even a movie watch-along–when we’re not organising book drives! So do give us a follow, hey? 🙂 The Friday Book Club (@fridaybookclub) | Twitter
