Selling Sands and Coral!Posted: August 23, 2013
For the past few days we’ve been selling old issues of Sands and Coral.
The Sands and Coral is the Literary Journal of Silliman University. Started in 1948, it is the first literary journal in the country. Throughout the years it has served as the literary folio of Sillimanians as well as fellows to the Silliman Writers Workshop. With its first editors including Aida Rivera-Ford, the Sands and Coral has been the venue for the early works of many now-famous Filipino writers.
We are selling old issues, dating from 1965 (with intermittent years) for this year’s Founders Celebrations. This year’s Founders happily coincides with Dumaguete hosting the Biannual Tipon, the gathering of Silliman alumni from all over the world.
because of their availability, some issues are surprisingly cheap. The price list for each available issue is as follows:
1965 — Php 45
1970 — Php 30
1977-78 — Php 15
1981-82 — Php 40
1989 — Php 25
1995 — Php 40
1996 — Php 40
1997 — Php 70
2001 — Php 250
Our sales table is at the lobby of historical Katipunan Hall. See you there!
