  • City Book Room 420 North Bridge Road Singapore, 188727 Singapore (map)

"From Third World to First", "Cosmopolitan", and "Democracy" are some of the words that have been naturally associated with the official narrative of Singapore. What then are the other lived stories hidden behind these buzzwords and how have these buzzwords affected the way we internalise our understanding of Singapore and its people? 

Join Philip Holden, Elaine Lynn-Ee Ho, and Seng Guo Quan, three contributors of Living with Myths in Singapore (Ethos Books, 2017) as they dig into these buzzwords and suggest alternative ways of thinking about Singapore that will be more useful in the long run.
