Singapore in the Malay World: Building and Breaching Regional Bridges, published in late 2009, was launched on June 24, 2010 at Select Books. We had a great turnout and everyone present was riveted by Lily Rahim’s extensive talk on the genesis of the book and key contentions and points from the book.
Singapore Malay playwright Alfian Sa’at and Professor Johan Saravanamuttu, currently a visiting senior research fellow at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, also spoke. We were also honoured that Mrs Jean Marshall was among those present at the event.
The launch was featured in The Straits Times in an article on June 25, 2010.
Here are some photos from the event:
