LAUNCH: In Transit: An Anthology From Singapore On Airports and Air Travel

  • BooksActually 9 Yong Siak Street Singapore, 168645 Singapore (map)

BooksActually is proud to present the launch of In Transit: An Anthology From Singapore On Airports and Air Travel, edited by Ruihe Zhang and Yu-Mei Balasingamchow.

The city-state of Singapore is small enough to fly over in three minutes, yet is also home to two of the “world’s best”, Changi Airport and Singapore Airlines. Inspired by the Singaporean love affair with Changi, editors Zhang and Balasingamchow have collected 35 poems, short stories and essays about the desire to escape from a tiny red dot, and the feeling of soaring thousands of miles up in the sky. The tales and meditations in this anthology will bring you on a fascinating journey from the bowels of Changi Airport to cruising altitudes halfway across the world.

Join them for the book launch, and come hear from some of the most exciting voices in Singapore literature today: Jon Gresham, Kirat Kaur, Daryl Qilin Yam, JY Yang, Christine Chia, Rodrigo Dela Peña, Benzie Dio, Alvin Pang and Cyril Wong.
