Book Launch of 'Everything About Us: Readings from Readings 3' #1


Event Description

Word Works Sdn Bhd warmly welcomes you and your guests to join us in the celebration of our latest literary endeavour - Everything About Us: Readings from Readings 3.

Everything About Us showcases 32 writers - both budding and established - who have taken part in Malaysia’s longest-running literary event Readings@Seksan. Once a month, writers come together in the inspiring surroundings of the Seksan Gallery in Bangsar to share their work in front of a live audience, and this third Readings from Readings anthology is a wonderful collection of their short stories, micro-fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction.

A little teaser of the literary treasures you can expect to find in this long-awaited book:

A KL taxi driver becomes obsessed with his passenger; an architect working on the biggest project of her professional life becomes the victim of a strange visitation; the lies and evasions of adults begin to unravel for a couple of children in a small American town. From a suicide bomber who escapes detention, to a teacher at the end of her tether, and a father who realizes the necessity of giving his daughter to a stranger, here are stories and poems that run the whole gamut of human emotion. There are pieces about love in all its forms –about terrifying curses and magical transformations; about daring escapes by sea by the dispossessed. And much, much more.

Want to know more about the book?

Come to the book launch party and get yourself a discounted - and perhaps even signed - copy! The editor herself, Ms. Sharon Bakar and some of the writers will be there to enjoy the merriment with plenty of lovely food and drinks, and yes, live Readings sessions by the writers themselves.
