The Birthday Book 2019: Book Launch + Afterparty
Dear Friends of The Birthday Collective,
Another year has passed and it's time for us to celebrate Singapore's 54th Birthday! This year, the Collective has assembled 54 new contributors for this year's edition of The Birthday Book, titled Narratives Undiscovered & Underway.
For newer friends, The Birthday Book is an annual publication that (usually) coincides with National Day to develop and collect innovative and diverse ideas, viewpoints, opinions, lessons and responses to conversations about Singapore - her past, present, people and future.
At this year's launch, we will also have a preview of the Collective's forthcoming initiatives, all designed to reach a wider audience and get more people interested in taking part in meaningful conversations. These include the second edition of the Junior Birthday Book, aimed at youngsters between 6 and 12 years old, workbooks developed from our contributors' essays, Janus seminars, and a hawker centre project.
We promise you will have a great afternoon engaging with our contributors over a piece of birthday cake and hope to see you there!
