Announcement: Book Launching of “The Passion of Jovita Fuentes”*

The writer’s back, with a vengeance. The provocative Ilonggo playwright, poet, and short story writer Peter Solis Nery  will launch his book The Passion of Jovita Fuentes.

The event will be held at the Activity Center of SM City Iloilo, Mandurriao, Iloilo City on the 6th of September 2009 at 11 in the morning.

Peter Solis Neri

The play of the same title won him the grand prize in the 2008 Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Award for a full-length play.

A copy of the book costs PHP 375.00. The title is published by New Day Publishing.

*This public announcement is made upon the request by Prince Golez, college friend at UP Visayas who has already done me a lot of favors. He is currently the ‘events manager’ of this book launching. He, I assume, has so much trust in this blog to disseminate the message although I failed to mention to him that my readers are mostly from the US or from the National Capital Region in the Philippines. But I am not wont refusing my friends’ requests.

  1. hey peter. thanks for spending time in my humble blog. i hope i did help you for whatever it is worth. good luck.

  2. thanks, john ryan!
    the books should be available at all national bookstores around september 1.
    i will personally bring copies to iloilo for the launching and visayas book tour, and will appoint assign booksellers, in case the places i go to do not have national bookstores.
    i will also bring copies to the U.S.A. for those who will be ordering from there. a friend in maryland has volunteered to take care of all orders from north america.
    thank you, thank you, thank you!

  3. the books will be published by the NEW DAY PUBLISHING, based in Manila. It will be sold in Manila, I think, as well. NERY is spelled with a “Y” not with an “I.” Thanks gd Fev. ahay, tani ari ka gd… during the event.
