I just wanted to let you know that I’ll be doing a book talk at Silverfish Books on Saturday 29 May at 5.30pm.

Their contact details are: Silverfish Books, 58-1 Jalan Telawi, Bangsar Baru, Kuala Lumpur at 5.30pm. Tel: 228 448 37 Email: info@silverfishbooks.com

Here’s the blurb:

Tunku Halim has written numerous collections of short stories, two novels, a biography and is the author of the very popular A Children’s History of Malaysia. His latest effort is the History of Malaysia: a Children’s Encyclopedia, a handsome hardbound volume that will educate not just children. Most of the buyers so far have been adults — many are expatriates who want to educate themselves a little more about the country they currently live in. Books on Malaysian history have become quite embarassingly scarce in the country and this is a welcome addition, not the least for its willingness to take some sacred cows by the horn.

I’m happy to talk about anything at the event, including self-publishing, the skills I had to learn whilst creating the encyclopedia, creative fiction writing, narrative non-fiction and writing for kids too!

That’s a lot to cover, so do pop over and ask questions!

I learn a lot from these events, mostly from the audience … so I’m looking forward to it.
