In a simple yet meaningful event organised by the Perak Academy, four Ipoh authors were introduced to the public through a short sharing session.
The authors, Dr Teoh Soong Kee (Cell Wars); Jasemin Sibo (Epiphany!); Bridget Eu Yoke Lin (When Footsteps Merge) and Alexandra Wong (Made In Malaysia) respectively spoke about the “story” behind their publication.
Although these books had been launched last year, perhaps there are some book lovers who have not heard of them, or the authors yet.
Except for Dr. S.K. Teoh, whose debut book on poems titled Young Emotion (2013), Epiphany!; When Footsteps Merge and Made In Malaysia are the first attempts by the other three authors. Meanwhile, Jasemin Sibo has recently published her second book, Zhu 珠 Pearl: Daughters of War, and Bridget has a new book of poetry in the pipeline, scheduled to be released later this year.
Coming from different backgrounds, where Alexandra was a corporate ladder climber, Bridget was in nursing, Jasemin in banking and Dr. Teoh in medicine, these books are certainly very diverse.
The event was also an opportunity to purchase these books at a special price, in conjunction with Mother’s Day, which is celebrated today, the second Sunday of May.
Those who have missed the chance to grab a copy may do so via reputable online bookstores or just contact Perak Academy at +605-2413742 or email to email@example.com
