Take Out, Take Home: Footloose Writers on Food and the Sense of Belonging

Following a reception, Singaporean writers will proceed to read from their works and contemplate the relationship between food and home. This presentation of literary works aims to showcase and build awareness of Singaporean writing in New York. This event provides a wonderful opportunity to hear and engage with the most distinctive voices emerging from the Little Red Dot.

Writers featured include Jee-Leong Koh (Author of Pillow Book Steep Tea), Amanda Lee Koe (Fiction Editor of Esquire Singapore, Author of Ministry of Moral Panic), Jeremy Tiang (Author of It Never Rains on National Day, Playwright for A Dream of Red Pavilions), Yen Yen Woo & Colin Goh (Pioneers of TalkingCock.com, Creators of Singapore Dreaming Dim Sum Warriors)

A reception will be held at 6pm between the Symposium and this event.
