The 2nd Printed Word Lecture : Romancing the Book

On July 12, 2014 (Saturday), FHL will once again hold The Printed Word, the lecture series on the BOOK, its history as well as other facets not readily known by the public. The second lecture entitled Romancing the Book will also be facilitated by Ms. Patricia May B. Jurilla, PhD.
In Romancing the Book, May Jurilla will discuss the history of making books, the parts of the book, and everything else related to the book as a material object. Select titles from the rare book collection of FHL will be displayed to supplement the talk.

May Jurilla has the distinction of being the first Filipino Book Historian in the Philippines, having earned her doctorate on Philippine Book History from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. She is an associate professor at the Department of English and Comparative Literature of University of the Philippines in Diliman. She has published various books and articles on the History of the Book in the Philippines. Her latest published work is Story book: essays on the history of book in the Philippines (2013).
We invite students, teachers, librarians, and book and literature lovers to attend the lecture on July 12, 2014 at 3:00 pm in the 2F Function Room of the Ayala Museum and to view the exhibit which will be displayed from July 12 to 18, 2014. Regular admission to the lecture is Php 300. For students, teachers, and senior citizens, a discounted rate of Php 150 is given to them upon presentation of a valid ID.
