April’s Dome Literary Readings – Home – features Singaporean and Malaysian writers reading their own works and highlights a theme that can be explored from a variety of positions: the family; clan, community or "my country and my people"; the physical house itself; the housing estate or even the HBD heartlands.

Writers to be featured in April’s readings include established or new writers in the poetry, drama and fiction circles: Charlene Rajendran and Ghulam Sarwar Yousof from Malaysia, Haresh Sharma, Chris Mooney-Singh, Augustine Kensai Chan and Ho Poh Fun (information on the writers is found below). Drop by for this literary experience!

The event will take place at Dome Café @ Kent Ridge, University Cultural Centre, from 1pm - 2pm on Friday 2 Apr 2004.

Admission is free and all are welcome.
