Those looking for enrichment titles for the young ones will not be disappointed as educational publishers Adept Learning, English Corner Publishing, JSIM Education and Nurture Craft will be selling their latest titles there. Foreign titles will also be available, courtesy of book distributor Alkem Company.

Exciting promotional activities await young and old alike.

Come back during the weekend to participate in an exciting range of programmes showcasing the vibrant Singapore book culture. Relive the moments of yesteryear with James Suresh as he shares stories of growing up in Queenstown.
