The inaugural George Town Literary Festival

Probably the first state-funded literary festival in Malaysia, we feature a line-up of of some of the country’s best, in a city that we all know and love, George Town, Penang.

I have had the honour and pleasure of curating this event, my second literary festival this year.

With the theme, History and Heritage: Where are our Stories? on the 26 & 27 November, we feature writers Farish A Noor, Tan Twan Eng, Shih-Li Kow, Iskandar Albakri and National Laureate Muhammad Haji Salleh in discussions and live performances about history, heritage and stories in ways that will engage and inspire you!
