Singapore Literature Festival
Friday-Sunday, October 10 – 12, 2014
For the first time ever, 14 Singaporean writers will converge on New York City from October 10 to 12, 2014, for the inaugural Singapore Literature Festival. They will read from locally and globally inspired works over 8 events in various locations around Manhattan, including 92nd Street Y, Book Culture, McNally Jackson, and NYU’s Lillian Vernon Creative Writers House.
Organized by a group of book-loving volunteers, the Singapore Literature Festival aims to showcase and build awareness of Singaporean writing among readers, editors, and publishing professionals in New York. The festival provides a wonderful opportunity to hear and engage with the most distinctive voices coming out of the city-state, which celebrates its 50th year of independence next year.
Of special note to Lambda would be the event on Saturday at 92Y, “The Politics of Love,” which feature two Singaporeans that identify as queer writers. Along with another writer, all three will discuss topics on modern love, desire, and relationships.
