    To formally open the event, De La Salle Philippines President and former Education Secretary Bro. Armin Luistro, FSC and TV Host/Media Personality Boy Abunda joined the ribbon cutting and gave a heartwarming speech to celebrate the written word.

    Boy Abunda, delivers a speech about his love for books. At the end of his speech, he says “may the force of the printed word ever be with you.”

    Bro. Armin Luistro encourages book fair goers to buy one book and give it as a gift for teachers this coming World Teachers Day.
