[Saturday Reads] Singapore’s National Library Board “Meet the Author” Fehmida Zakeer

Myra here.


Every Saturday we hope to share with you our thoughts on reading and books. We thought that it would be good practice to reflect on our reading lives and our thoughts about reading in general. While on occasion, we would feature a few books in keeping with this, there would be a few posts where we will just write about our thoughts on read-alouds, libraries, reading journals, upcoming literary conferences, book events, books that we are excited about, and just booklove miscellany in general.

This week, I have something different to share. For those who are based here in Singapore, you might be interested to participate in this event organized by the National Library Board (NLB): Meet the Author – Fehmida Zakeer. Do note that all programmes are free and you need only to register by emailing your (1) name (2) contact number and (3) event title [Meet the Author: Fehmida Zakeer] to readsingapore (at) nlb (dot) gov (dot) sg.

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
