I'm in a panel discussion on December 8th with Channel News Asia's Deepika Shetty and Ivan Chew*:
A treat for book lovers out there, World Wide Web of Words – Literary Blogs, brings together online communities of readers and writers. Thoughtful and insightful, our panelists will talk about their favourite page-turners and web pages! Log on and join in the fun!Of course, while you're down there to see us (!) you might like to check out some authors who will be appearing including our own Tash Aw, Tan Twan Eng, A. Samad Said, Faisal Tehrani, Sharanya Manivannan and that superstar of local bloggers, Kenny Sia.
Or some of the other big names from across the world including Jung Chang (Wild Swans), Su Tong (Raise the Red Lantern), Kunal Basu (Racists), Irish poet Paddy Bushe, Israeli author Eli Amir, UK performance poet Charlie Dark, and cookery writer Madhur Jaffrey.
And of course all of Singapore literature's brightest and best ...
It's going to be a lot of fun for book lovers ... though I am frustrated that I won't be able to stay down in Singapore for the whole nine days.
(More discussion of highlights on Deepika's blog.)
Really hate to sound ungrateful about something I'm actually very very grateful for, but am finding the website a nightmare to negotiate. I'd love a print out of the whole programme but there doesn't seem any way of doing this ...
(*I typed Eric Forbes before this as I had seen his name on the initial invite ... Sorry for misinformation. I seem to have been spreading a lot of it today.)
