Poetic Announcement!

Hello beautiful peeps!

We have an exciting event coming up this weekend and if Elaine succeeds in getting us poets a spot, we will have the opportunity to churn some lyrical wax as well! But if not, there's no reason not to show your support for reading and go all crazy against the immoral/unethical act of book banning. See you there!


Sisters In Islam and Centre For Independent Journalism are proud to present the “Right To Read Festival”, a gala promoting creative ideas and independent thought, and a celebration of free expression and the right to information.

Books are the keystone of information and expression. Books can feed the mind, nourish soul, and promote positive change in individuals and society. Living in a world without books is like living in a world without air, we definitely cannot survive without books. The act of banning books is like banning air – senseless. Not to mention, dangerous! Yet, between 1971 and 2009, the Malaysian government has banned more than 1,500 books. So, join us to stop this bibliocide and celebrate our “Right To Read”!

Date: Saturday & Sunday, October 10th& 11th, 2009
Time: 10.30am - 6.00pm
Location: The Annexe Gallery, KL
