Ateneans Shine in 2015 Palanca Awards

September 03, 2015
“Literature adds to reality; it does not simply describe it.  It enriches the necessary competences that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become.”
 
-C.S. Lewis (British Scholar and Novelist, 1898-1963)
