Writing from Singapore: with Jeremy Tiang

  • Date: Friday 17 November 2017
  • Time: 3:30-5pm
  • Location: University of Leeds, Parkinson Building, B.09

Join us in conversation with acclaimed writer, translator and playwright Jeremy Tiang, a long time supporter of our Writing Chinese project, to discuss his debut novel State of Emergency (Epigram Books), and the literary scene in Singapore.

State of Emergency was a finalist for the 2016 Epigram Books Fiction Prize.

Jeremy Tiang’s debut novel dives into the tumultuous days of leftist movements and political detentions in Singapore and Malaysia. It follows an extended family from the 1940s to the present day as they navigate the choppy political currents of the region. What happens when the things that divide us also bind us together?

You can find out more about Jeremy on our bookclub page.

There will be wine and nibbles at the event, plus a bookstore from Blackwells.

All welcome!
