Through a story-telling session with co-author Linda Locke, learn how Singapore’s National Flower — Vanda Miss Joaquim — was created and find out more about Agnes Joaquim, the woman who made it all happen!

Linda Locke will lead a storytelling session, which will be followed by a colouring activity where you get to design your own orchid!

Linda Locke is a great-grandniece of Agnes Joaquim, and the story of Agnes and the creation of the Vanda Miss Joaquim is also a family story. She was previously a chief executive and creative director of Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising, and chairman and regional creative director of Leo Burnett Advertising, and has more than 300 creative awards to her name. She later started her own consultancy, Godmother Pte Ltd, and held several key positions at Club21, a luxury fashion distributor. She now serves on the board of two companies. This is her first children’s book.
