Press Release 2017 Church Strengthening Ministry (CSM Publishing)

Experience CSM’s Book Buffet at the 38th MIBF

Church Strengthening Ministry (CSM Publishing) is preparing a delectable spread of reading resources for you at this year’s Manila International Book Fair (MIBF)! Get ready to feast on a buy-all-you-can, read-all-you-can buffet of books that inspire, encourage, enlighten, strengthen your faith, and help you align your life to biblical truths.

CSM Publishing has been participating in the MIBF for almost ten years. Known in MIBF circles as the Christian publisher that ushered in the P100 Lahat book sale (which set a precedent for other exhibitors to offer quality books at more affordable prices and is now an annually-awaited promo event for book buyers all over NCR), CSM seeks to offer you something new again this year. Along with hot-off-the-press reads cooked up by your favorite authors such as Chinkee Tan, Grace Chong, Joey Umali, Ed Lapiz, and more, we are serving a fresh selection of titles from new authors on relevant topics such as lessons on manhood and how to deal with cyberbullying.

The CSM booth (numbers 21-26) will be located near the Hall 3 entrance or front row of the first-floor exhibit area. But this year, we are also opening an extension booth on the second floor! This is in cooperation with the MIBF’s expansion of its floor space by adding a second-floor exhibit hall for children and young adult resources. CSM’s new booth (number 2-112) is located right at the entrance. Here, we will serve a smorgasbord of printed and audiovisual materials for kids and teens such as books, comics, videos, and related items in collaboration with HeartShaper (producer and distributor of Christian video resources) and other significant partners.

Aside from giving you affordable book offers, CSM desires to enhance your book fair experience through learning events especially designed for parents and teachers of children and youth. CSM will be hosting free back-to-back seminars entitled Reaching Out to Children with Special Needs and Bully-Proof: Approaches and Strategies to Bullying Prevention. These seminars will be facilitated by accredited speakers and will be held on September 16 (Saturday), 1-3 pm, at the second-floor Stage Area. We also invite you to attend CSM’s Grand Book Launch on September 15 (Friday), 5:30-7:00 pm, at the first-floor Stage Area.

Sample our spread, satisfy your palate, and take home books to nourish your soul and to share with others! Visit CSM’s Book Buffet at the MIBF at booth nos. 21-26 on the first-floor exhibit area and at booth no. 2-112 on the second-floor exhibit area. The MIBF will be held on September 13 to 17, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia, Pasay City. The gate opens at 10 am.
