Take a walk with Charmaine Leung down memory’s lane, and revisit the Keong Saik of the 1970s. Growing up in a shophouse on Keong Saik Road when it was a prominent red-light precinct, Charmaine recollects the stories of the place and its people then. These include her personal accounts of the Ma Je, the Pei Pa Zai, and the Dai Gu Liong. Charmaine is the author of 17A Keong Saik Road. 

This programme is organised in partnership with Ethos Books. Limited to 25 participants. 
Registration is required. Suitable for participants aged 50 and above who like a good walk. To register, please email your name, phone number and age to chan_sing_ying@nlb.gov.sg.
