We had A Speculative Fiction Tea-Party (With Less Tea and More Writing) at the Earshot Cafe at The Arts House. It was by June, Dave Chua, Joyce Chng and Alvin Pang.
Previously… on Seriously Sarah with the Awaken the Dragon mini workshop…
Our pieces are done! And displayed! Wooooh. No, we didn’t do all that. It’s all contributed by everyone who attended the workshops or mini shows or did private group sessions.
Anyway, this will be at the National Museum of Singapore until the 24th March 2013, it’s near the back of the museum, past the shop and it’s free to have a looksee!
There was a literary cocktail with Garth Nix last week (1 March 2012), technically he was here in Singapore for a few school visits, a free event at The Arts House on Wednesday for a promo of his new book A Confusion of Princes and well, this one!
It was supposed to be at the Blue Room but it was held at the Earshot Cafe.
It’s cozier there.
Quite a few interesting events! Firstly on Saturday…
Lauren Kate Signings in Singapore
Lauren Kate, writer of the Fallen series will be here in Singapore on 9 July 2011!

Considering I have a party to host in the evening with things to prepare, I’m probably going to the session at the Serangoon library. Now, to figure how to get there…
Next up, we have:
The Asian Festival of Children’s Content was on the 26-28 May 2011. I got registered for it and since it did cost quite a bit, here are some highlights and notes from the conferences! It is a literary adventure for this episode. The conferences and workshops were held at the Arts House.
Woooh, a whole bunch of events! Well, usually these things tend to run in the second half of the year onwards. Click the more cut to read more. We have:

Uuuungh. I did wonder to split this post into two or something but whatever. I’ll put them under headlines so you can scroll and pick at it at your own pace or something. Or usually, I’d just copy just the title of the event and press ctrl+f it or apple+f depending on which computer I’m on.
Onwards we go!
Is it me or are there more author appearances for this year or something? Anyway, here’s the info! A copy paste from the various sources I got.
- Andrea Levy
- Norma Sit
- Greg Mortenson
And also one book launch at the Earshot by R. Chandran and Amy J Cheng
Here we go!
Okay, I got this info cause my friend is working in the museums here. If you haven’t been to the Peranakan museum yet, you should try to go on the 25th or 26th April 2009! Special admission on that day is $2 instead of $8 and ooooh, there’s a lot happening on that weekend.
And oooh free bibik notebooks or ice cream with a ticket purchase, while stocks last!
