#BuySingLit 2020Organised by: Singapore Book Council
Performed by: Various Artists
The annual #BuySingLit movement is back with a bang for its fourth year running. Explore our diverse literary landscape like you never have before: go beyond just reading – hear, see, touch and even taste the world of Singapore literature, also known as SingLit in short. Participants both young and old are invited to embark on a journey around Singapore, traversing familiar heartlands to the iconic Jewel Changi Airport, and even the revamped, historic Pasir Panjang Power Station. These locations set the stage for multi-sensory activities such as gem biscuit-making, music performances, writing workshops and dramatic readings, that will unlock new perspectives on local literature.
More than 60 exciting programmes will be held over two weekends from 6-8 and 13-15 March. Advocating'Buy Local, Read Our World', #BuySingLit aims to raise awareness about SingLit by celebrating stories from Singapore. The movement gathers homegrown book publishers, retailers and literary non-profits to encourage more people to embrace and discover SingLit.
