The No Readgrets Book Club is proud to host its inaugural event of the year, focusing on the rich heritage of Singapore's indigenous communities. This enlightening gathering is set for Mar. 2 at Crane, located in Claymore Connect, offering participants a unique blend of literary discussion and cultural immersion.

From 11 AM to 12:30 PM, attendees will delve into the poignant narrative of "Rawa" by Isa Kamari, a novel that explores the life and challenges of the Orang Seletar, a native Singaporean community known for their seafaring lifestyle. The story, spanning three generations from the 1950s to the 1980s, reflects on the impacts of modernization and assimilation faced by these indigenous people.

Following the book discussion, from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM, guests will be treated to an authentic lunch prepared by Orang Laut SG, featuring the traditional cuisine of the Semakau islanders, providing a taste of the seafaring life that defines Singapore's indigenous heritage.

This ticketed event includes a delicious meal by Orang Laut SG and one beverage, courtesy of Crane. With limited slots available, interested participants are encouraged to secure their spot promptly to experience this unique blend of literature and culinary tradition.

"Rawa" is available for borrowing at NLB libraries and for purchase at major bookstores, allowing attendees to familiarize themselves with the book before the event.
