By holding the event at the two new venues, the organisers aim to transform the two iconic venues in the Singapore’s Civic District into a place where books and creative culture flourish.

Kids Zone @ B1: Children’s books and workshops will be featured at the Kids Zone.
Lifestyle Workshops @ B2 Space: Handicrafts, lifestyle products and workshops such as wine, sake or tea appreciation will be held here.
The lawn at CHIJMES will be the creative culture zone, where works of local creative designers can be found. Visitors can also enjoy movies related to literary works and music performances of local singers in the evenings.
