Join Cultural Medallion winner, Isa Kamari, as he reads excerpts from his new novella, Tweet. Set in Singapore's iconic bird park, Tweet is a work of imaginative fiction that marries traditional storytelling with a modern theme. Through a dialogue between a Singaporean grandfather and his grandhchild, the author ponders over the stress and demands of our modern human existence, exposing us to the frailties of modern life. Tweet is Isa Kamari's first ever English language work that reveals a new facet of his storytelling abilities, which is part philosophical and part imaginative.
