About the Programme/Event

Join us at Singapore Literature Book Club as we discuss the recently published anthology Singapore at Home: Life Across Lines. This will be an interactive session, please come prepared to discuss the book and share your thoughts!

About the Book

Stories from Singapore at Home: Life across Lines offer a rare glimpse into the lives of a diverse cross-section of the island-state’s residents, and invite us into their most intimate space—home. Immigrants, migrants, expats, settled generations bring us into their bedrooms, balconies, kitchens and other spaces, their heartaches, traumas, dreams and desires. In so doing, they reshape their life experiences and their relationships with those whom they share their home.

The writers featured in this anthology include Isha B., Azeena Badarudeen, Ilya Katrinnada Binte Zubaidi, Arathi Devandran, Dia Feng-Lowe, Surinder Kaur, Ken Lye, Cecilia Mahendran, Gargi Mehra, Kalpana Mohan, Clara Mok, Payal Morankar, Vanessa Ng Q.R., Rolinda Onates Española, Anna Onni, Anjali Patil, Ranjani Rao, Aparna Das Sadhukhan, Euginia Tan, Audrey Tay and Phyllis Wong.
