I will be in two literary events in Singapore

on Saturday, October 31st:




In Singapore




RAISING THE PROFILE OF ASIAN LITERATURE

LANGUAGE
This session is in English

MODERATED BY
Desmond Kon

DESCRIPTION

Eleven years ago, Bẚo Ninh said, “Vietnamese literature is falling behind the rest of the world.” A decade on, he sits with Linh Dinh to take stock of the situation. South Korea’s Eun Heekyung, Indonesia’s Laksmi Pamuntjak and Singapore’s Koh Jee Leong join Desmond Kon to discuss how much the literature from Asia has progressed in international consciousness, and what else can be done.



EPIC INTERNATIONAL POETRY NIGHT

LANGUAGE
This session is in English

DESCRIPTION

It’s a global feast of words! Come join us for a unique, thought-provoking evening as seven acclaimed poets from around the world gather for an evening of poetry reading.

This event is made possible with the assistance of The Japan Foundation and the U.S. Embassy Singapore.

I'd guess this is unlikely to be a problem, but..

"Amos Yee was held in Block 7, where individuals suffering from mental illness and who have been convicted of criminal offences are kept. For 23 hours a day, he was kept in a cell with closed-circuit security cameras and with the lights always on..

"The case against the teenage blogger has shone a spotlight on the wider restrictive environment for freedom of expression in Singapore. As the country celebrates 50 years of independence, opposition activists, former prisoners of conscience and human rights defenders continue to express dismay about the restricted space for public discussion, and the government’s tight control of critical debate.

"The authorities persist in using defamation laws against critics, and the media continues to be tightly controlled through restrictive censorship laws."

Yo Ian,

Many thanks, man, for this information. I know nothing about Amos Yee but will read up on him.
