PANEL: Literature as Dissent

  • WeWork 60 Anson Road Singapore, 079914 Singapore (map)
cover-A0OALlLDWJX2Z6jlio0H51dGdzMOizXA.jpg

Join playwright Tan Tarn How and comic artist Sonny Liew in this discussion on the role writers play in imagining alternative visions of Singapore. 

➔ What kind of traction does dissenting literature have?
➔ Should writers be seen as activists?
➔ Do literary critics engage enough with the sociopolitical content of local works?

Find out what two of Singapore's renowned writers—and naysayers—have to say in conversation with journalist and author Simon Vincent. This panel discussion is a continuation of the themes explored in the book The Naysayer's Book Club: 26 Singaporeans You Need to Know.

There will be free flow of beer during registration. So imbibe yourself, get engaged and join the club!
