So it's Valentine's weekend and you don't have any plans. NBD. We can work with that. Whether you're coupled up, happily single, or simply not looking, here's an idea: Why don't we talk about our feelings? They can be as big or small as you want them to be. They can be the all-important stuff of seriousness kind of feelings. They can be of mundane, everyday feelings. They can even be someone else's feelings. Because, let's be honest, who doesn't have feelings, right?
And we found the perfect place where we can all share the feels and emotions without being judged for it. This Sunday (yup, that's Valentine's Day), come to the Eastwood City Walk where some of your favorite writers will be ready to share some of their feels with you!
Candy #Feels is a compilation of stories about love, life, heartbreak, and everything in between straight from You!, our readers. There are also a few all-original pieces from some of your favorite celebrities and personalities like actresses Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Sofia Andres, and Saab Magalona-Bacarro; That Thing Called Tadhana and On the Wings of Love director Antoinette Jadaone, theater director Toff de Venecia, and musicians BP Valenzuela and Kai Honasan. Former editor in chief Marla Miniano, Chinggay Labrador, Regina Belmonte, and the writers and editors of Candy and candymag.com have also contributed the work to the book.
And if you're a fan of poetry, In Case You Come Back features over 100 poems penned by Marla and Reese Lansangan. Accompanying the words are equally beautiful illustrations by the talented Jamie Catt. An extra treat? The foreword is written by singer-songwriter Ebe Dancel.
Check out the gallery below for a sneak peek at these books.
Candy Feels and In Case You Come Back are available in bookstores, convenience stores, newsstands, and supermarkets nationwide for just P250 each. Both books will be available at the launch this Sunday. So see you at 4pm in Eastwood Central Plaza and don't forget to wear your heart on your sleeve.
