Singapore Book Club: “Choi! Touchwood!”

In January, join Jesvin Yeo, Liew Jie Ni, Alvin Ng and David Fedo as they discuss “Choi! Touchwood!”

Choi! Touchwood! takes you through the history of landmarks like Thian Hock Keng Temple, Smith Street, Ang Siang Hill and Sago Lane. It contrasts the phenomenon of a modern society and traditional beliefs and brings out reminiscent feelings for old traditions. It reminds people about their childhood days when traditions, myths and taboos were a big part of their lives. In modern, developed and globalised Singapore, traditions become immaterial, yet it is always valuable to archive it for our younger and future generations.

Date: 21 January 2011, Friday

Time: 7.00pm

Venue: Earshot @ The Arts House (1 Old Parliament Lane)

ADMISSION IS FREE!
