This Monday (October 8), the Studio Dialogo team headed over to the newly opened National Bookstore at the Greenhills Shopping Arcade for the Book Launch of “Nanay Coring: The Story of National Bookstore’s Socorro Ramos”. The book was written by Yvette Fernandez and Dialogo’s own Liza Flores.
Socorro Ramos or Nanay Coring, as she’s fondly called, grew up from poverty during the Second World War. She built National Bookstore from nothing and had to rebuild the business twice during the early days when a fire and then a typhoon wiped out everything they owned. Now, as everyone in the Philippines knows, National Bookstore is the leading bookstore in the country, selling everything from books to giftwrapper, school supplies to safe boxes.
