BooksActually: You Can Now Get Your Dose Of Singaporean Literature At The Fullerton Hotels

By Sherryl Cheong

The Fullerton Hotels Singapore is bringing its guests’ experience of Singapore to the next level as you can now enjoy books and poetry by local authors in the convenience and comfort of the rooms. Immerse yourself in the tales spun by our local talents with the browsing copies available.

This was made possible through a collaboration with BooksActually, a Singapore-based independent bookstore. Kenny Leck, the founder, welcomed the opportunity to boost the visibility of Singaporean literary talents to the world and believes that “readers [can] develop a better appreciation of Singapore’s rich tapestry of history and culture.”

The three books that have been selected are Balik Kampung 2A, Dreaming Cities and The Desire For Elsewhere. They will be available in 28 suites in The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and in six suites in The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore.

These books along with an additional title, Yesteryears, will also be available for purchase at The Fullerton Shop, the hotel’s lifestyle boutique.

Even if you’re not planning to stay at The Fullerton Hotels anytime soon, you can still head over to The Fullerton Shop to check out these books. It’s about time we get the word out about Singaporean literature!
