The University of the Philippines Press, Anvil Publishing Inc., the Ateneo de Manila University Press, and the De La Salle University Press are each offering special sales packages to benefit the teachers whose offices were gutted in the fire that hit the UP Diliman Faculty Center last April 1, 2016.
Starting April 6 until November 29, the University of the Philippines Press will be giving a 75 percent discount to all its titles. It will also donate a set of its pertinent titles to each of the affected departments.
De La Salle Publishing House is also offering 75 percent discount to its titles.
Anvil Publishing is offering two rates: 80 percent to its titles from 2009 and older, and 20 percent off for titles from 2010 to the present.
The Ateneo de Manila University Press will be conducting a general sale—all books at half-price—starting April 18, to last until April 29. Each faculty member will be entitled to one free book.
For all the participating presses, purchases will be checked against a master list of the affected faculty members (numbering 267, from all the five academic departments of the College of Arts and Letters, and four departments in the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy of UP Diliman). Multiple purchases for any one title are not allowed, but there is no limit to the number of individual books that may be bought. Donors are welcome to purchase books under the names of the teachers they wish to support. For donation tracking, bring a photocopy of any identification card.
