The organizers have raised more than $7,000 on Kickstarter to fund this event. Thus far, they have confirmed the participation of fifteen Singaporean authors including Alvin Pang, Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan, and Wena Poon. The festival will take place from October 10-12, 2014 in various venues throughout New York City.

Here’s more from POPSPOKEN: “Besides promoting the festival via social media and an official blog, the Singapore Literature Festival organizers initiated Second Saturdays, an ongoing monthly reading series in New York City featuring Singaporean and American literature. Previous Second Saturdays guests include 2014 Pulitzer Prize for poetry winner Vijay Seshadri, and Joseph Legaspi, co-founder and chair of Asian-American arts organization Kundiman.”
