BK: What Writing Means in Singapore with Alvin Pang, Cyril Wong, and Jason Erik Lundberg

    10/09/2014 - 7:00pm

    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.

    "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."
