Philippine Book Festival Davao

At the heart of my advocacies lies a deep-seated belief in the transformative power of literature.

I thank the National Book Development Board for orchestrating the Philippine Book Festival. This platform honors our homegrown authors, editors, book designers, and illustrators, showcasing thousands of books created by Filipinos for Filipinos.

As a four-term senator, I stand dedicated to the causes of education and literacy, pledging my unwavering support to this event that kindles a lifelong passion for learning among our youth. Together, let us pave the way for a thriving literary ecosystem, cultivating a profound appreciation for the written word and fostering a nation of avid readers.
