Curated by former Festival Director, Paul Tan, this popular programme from the 2013 and 2014 festival returns to delight audiences once again. Have fun with the fast-disappearing Chinese dialects in Singapore and rediscover the charming nursery rhymes and stories of yore. Featuring members from The Glowers Drama Group, this session is in Mandarin, English, as well as the dialects of Cantonese, Teochew, Hokkien, Hainanese and Hakka. Handouts of rhymes translated into English will be provided.

A different story will be told every half hour at 11.30am, 12pm and 12.30pm.

25 Programmes in 25 Libraries
To mark the 25th edition of the SWF, we collaborate with the National Library Board to present 25 programmes in 25 libraries across the island. Come discover talks, workshops, and book club meetings taking place beyond the festival grounds and in your public library. We are proud to share the symbiotic relationship between SWF and NLB in nurturing the love of reading and writing for diverse audiences.
