What happens when you put Singaporean and Malaysian writers together in a room? What will they talk about? Where to find the best food, or the best bookstore? Or maybe they will compare notes on books from each country? Five writers from both sides of the causeway have come together to take part in this special literary exchange Same Same But Different. The view from across the causeway may seem similar but yet different. But perhaps the writers – through a celebration of new book launches, conversations and music performances – will discover that they have more things in common than not.
Organised by the Singapore Book Council, Same Same But Different promises to feature an entire afternoon's worth of literary activities. For more details, click on the event link provided below.
