Singapore Book Bazaar – The Book Fair by Singapore Publishers
The Singapore Book Bazaar will be held from Thursday 14 November to Monday 18 November at the Anchorpoint Shopping Centre. The bazaar is organised by the Singapore Book Publishers Association, a trade association representing local and international publishing firms based in Singapore.
Modelling on the traditional night markets that were once prevalent in Singapore, the Singapore Book Bazaar offers an eclectic mix of books that will appeal to book lovers and the general public alike. Visitors can browse through the latest product offerings from familiar brand names such as Asiapac Books, Epigram Books and World Scientific, as well as the latest titles from established publishers such as Armour Publishing and Pustaka Nasional. Those looking for enrichment titles for the young ones will not be disappointed as educational publishers Adept Learning, English Corner Publishing, Jsim Education and Nurture Craft will be selling their latest titles there. Foreign titles will also be available, courtesy of book distributor Alkem Company.
Exciting promotional activities await young and old alike. The first 30 customers who spend $50 and above at Anchorpoint Shopping Centre during the Book Bazaar will stand a chance to pick a free book over the SBPA counter at Basement 1. For those literary-minded, test your knowledge of Singapore Literature (SingLit) at the SBPA counter and stand a chance to win a free SingLit title. Why not gift a book this holiday season? Visitors who fill up a survey form will stand a chance to win a book hamper worth $1,000. Consider your Christmas shopping done!
Come back during the weekend to participate in an exciting range of programmes showcasing the vibrant Singapore book culture. Relive the moments of yesteryear with James Suresh as he shares stories of growing up in Queenstown. Visitors can also expect a special programme prepared by Xinwave Academy, a local start-up promoting life-long learning. Other highlights to look out for include opportunities to illustrate animals from Gracie Chai, who illustrated Epigram Books’ Make Animals Great Again, as well as a storytelling session from Asiapac Books’ book Siddhartha: The Prince who became Buddha. The best 2019 titles in Singapore publishing will be displayed too!
