Recently, the Singapore Children’s Society published a book titled, Singapore Childhood: Our Stories Then and Now. This book traces the political, economic and social changes that have taken place over the past six decades and how they have transformed the childhood of children in Singapore. It comes in both an English and a Chinese version. The author of the English version is Ms Jaime Koh.
I attended the launch of the book on 11 August at the National Library Building in Victoria Street.
This coming Saturday, I will participate in a Sharing Session to help to promote this book. Details are as follows:
Date/Time: Saturday, 25 August, 11am to 1pm
Venure: Woodlands Regional Library Programme Zone (Level 1), 900 South Woodlands Drive, Woodlands Civic Centre #01-03
Together with two other panellists, Mrs Elizabeth Peeris, a retired nurse, and Ms Zhang Tingjun, Director & Co-Founder of The Chain Reaction Project, we will be sharing sections of the book and relating them to our own experience of our childhood. The moderator is Channel News Asia’s Mr Steven Chia.
