This event takes place at our Brooklyn location. What does the act of creative writing mean in a hyper-modern city-state where free expression cannot be taken for granted? Alvin Pang, Cyril Wong, and Jason Erik Lundberg -- three acclaimed authors from Singapore -- will read from their published work. Find out how they negotiate, subvert and push back against censorship, conservative community norms, corporate doublespeak and other barriers to free speech, and are bootstrapping a literary culture that is thriving despite the odds in the process.Facebook RSVP encouraged but not required.
Featuring contributions from 39 contemporary writers who represent some of the finest creative talent in the four major literary languages in Singapore today (Chinese, Malay, Tamil, and English), this anthology features complex, diverse, and cosmopolitan literature that breaks monocultural expectations.$12.99ISBN: 9781492363682Availability: Available from our distributor; usually Ships in 1-5 DaysPublished: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform - September 29th, 2013
"Jason Erik Lundberg's stories, launched from the real world on a trajectory to the surreal, fuse the idle daydream with the desperate heart. You should read them."
-John Kessel, author of The Baum Plan for Financial Independence and Other Stories
