Hello, Mga Kaibigan! We would like to take this time to thank those fighting for health and justice. We stand with Black Lives Matter, those protesting the Anti-Terror Bill in the Philippines, and the Filipino Frontliners in hospitals all over the world. Your work is making history.
We would also like to thank all of your continued interest and support in Arkipelago Books on-line. Our plans to reopen the shop are still unclear, as the continued efforts to ensure the safety of our customers and our families remains a priority. We will continue to ship from our store, as well as explore other modes of transfer including local drop-offs with minimum purchase, and monthly specials on shipping costs.
This month finds us at the tip of summer with Arkipelago T-shirts, new book titles and some restocked favorites. See our Young Adult Fiction for Erin Entrada Kelly’s latest novel, We Dream of Space. Explore the complex relationship that is Filipinos + America in Abe Ignacio’s The Forbidden Book: The Philippine-American War in Politcal Cartoons. And one of our favorites is back -- A LoLong Time Ago: A Pre History of the Philippines, the first book of the Halo Halo Histories series and book two, Cashaysayan: The History of Philippine Money, created to make the study of Philippine History fun and engaging for young people. Please enjoy the new Summer discount code and stay tuned to weekly updates and promotions on our instagram and facebook pages.
We at Arkipelago hope you are safe and well, and have a nice quiet spot to enjoy a book in all this weather.
