The Scholastic Asian Book Award books (Sula’s Voyage by Catherine Torres, What Things Mean by Sophia Lee, and Dragonhearted by Xie Shi Min) are having a book launch on May 27, 2016, 4:15-5:15PM at the National Library in Singapore. Here is the link to the Facebook event page for more details. There will also be a post-launch reading and discussion of the three books at Littered with Books on May 28, 2016, 5PM onwards. Event page can be found here.
If you’re in Singapore during those dates, you might consider attending these events. Looks like they’re going to be fun. Littered with Books is a cozy indie bookstore and I wouldn’t have minded visiting it again. I’m bummed that I’m missing these book events because I’ll be in Manila! Two of the authors, Catherine and Sophia, are both Filipinos and I would have loved to meet them in person. In any case, I’m thrilled that Scholastic is publishing their books and I’m looking forward to reading them. Yay to more Filipino YA.
