Sean Lam is a Singaporean author and graphic novelist. He is best known for his two-part graphic novel adaption of New York Times bestselling Larry Niven's sci-fi novel ‘Ringworld’ and a 32-page ‘Pope Benedict’ manga comic where 300,000 copies were distributed for World Youth Day 2011 in Madrid. He was also the International Award-winning artist of the bible themed graphic novel, 'Judith: Captive to Conqueror' at Angoulême Christian Comics Festival in France. Upon settling back to Singapore at the end of 2019, Sean eventually sets his heart towards writing and producing graphic novels most familiar to his roots exploring his favourite genre, covering a range of fictions from horror to sci-fi, fantasy and romance.

About the Series:

How do human beings behave in times of uncertainty? What goes on behind the scenes of writing ghost stories? How can we approach mortality and living? Can we joke about death?

Night at the Library 2021 will bring to the fore of these conversations with over 12 programmes, through online talks and panels, illustrated and original ghost stories, a self-directed trail and a podcast.

Bringing writers who explore supernatural in literature and as cultural phenomenon, to professionals who encounter mortality in the fields of funeral planning and end of life care, Night at the Library will confront the uncertainties of reality and horrors that keep us awake at night.
