Malaysian Writer on Road Show in US

Thanks to Eng Han for highlighting this. She would be having her book promotion at various areas in US, including New York City, Columbia University, Harvard University, Rochester, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

This is definitely a spirit of Malaysia Boleh!

Dear all,

Preeta Samarasan, a new and upcoming Malaysian writer, will be hitting a destination near you soon to promote her book, Evening is the Whole Day. Do go to her events to show your support! She'll be in NYC this weekend and Boston the coming week!

Would encourage any of my blog readers to share with me any event that you come across. As long as the event/activity/initiative is education/charity/youth oriented and is not-for-profit, I would be more than happy to post it to share!
