Many of the books below will be launched at the Singapore Writers Festival.

SP: What is your biggest hope, as a publisher of fine Singapore literature, for this Singapore Writers Festival?

Kenny Leck: “The world is our Oyster. A speck of dirt Singapore Literature is, for now. We will, one day, grow into a luminescent pearl in the literary world. This is my biggest hope.”

Enjoy these images, especially selected for you by SP.
