MEET-THE-AUTHOR: Ann Wee

  • Ngee Ann City 391 Orchard Road Singapore, 238872 Singapore (map)

Ann Wee, one of Singapore’s pioneering social work educators, has recently published a book, titled, A Tiger Remembers: The Way We Were in Singapore. Born in the Year of the Tiger, Ann Wee moved to Singapore in 1950 to marry into a Singaporean Chinese family.

Affectionately observed and wittily narrated, A Tiger Remembers: The Way We Were in Singapore brings to life Singapore’s social transformation. This book captures the things that Ann Wee remembers but history books leave out – questions of hygiene, terms of endearment, the emotional nuance in social relations, rural clan settlements, migrant dormitories, and more.

If you are curious to know how much Singapore has changed from the perspective of Ann Wee, make it a point to pick up a copy of this book and join Kinokuniya for a sharing session with the nonagenarian at Kinokuniya Singapore Main Store on 18 Mar 2017.
