About this event

Grab your blankets and turn off the lights as we explore Singapore's urban legends. Get spooked with Mervin Ang during this session, as he not only shares spine-tingling and fascinating urban legends, but reveals lesser-known facts and evidence to further unravel these stories.

Speaker profile:

Mervin Ang (Manager, Outreach) is a versatile speaker with over seven years of experience in the National Library Board. His work consists of public education and advocacy of information literacy, along with hosting various public tours and programmes. He is also an avid fan of paranormal and investigative shows, from Beyond Belief to Buzzfeed Unsolved, and considers himself brave for watching horror movies with both eyes closed.

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.
