Malaysian poet, novelist and critic Shirley Geok-lin Lim will be at Silverfish (67-1 Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru) 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm on Saturday, 25th March 2006.
She will be reading from her latest novel, Sister Swing, a coming-of age story of three sisters who move from a relatively shelted life Malaysia to the harsher realities the United States.
Please R.S.V.P. by 23rd March 2006 to Vasantha/Phek Chin at Tel: (603) 228 448 37 (Admission is free but they need to know numbers! )
And for sure I'll be there. I last met Lim at a literature conference in KL several years back and was lucky enough to participate in a creative writing workshop she ran with New Zealand author Witi Ihimaera. Both were warm and encouraging sharers of their craft.
