In partnership with Persatuan Kebajikan Sinar Sofia, a portion of each ticket sold will go towards caring for the destitute. This outreach project aims to help women who have been forced into sex work, to help get them off the streets and to empower them with alternative income generating skills.

From comedy to tragedy, exploring roots, sexuality and politics, these three books have it all. Discover these three brilliant emerging women writers from around the world and take a leaf out of their books.

Jenny Zhang

Zhang's "Sour Heart" (a collection of tatler_tatler_stories about a group of teenage girls in New York) is one of the two titles that Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner are using to launch their upcoming Lenny imprint in Summer 2017. Known for her taboo-breaking, unexpected and unafraid writing style, Zhang has already made her mark in poetry circles.

Samanta Schweblin

Born in Argentina, Schweblin is already a big name in the Spanish-speaking world. Her haunting novel "Fever Dream" (Riverhead) is her first to be translated into English (by Megan McDowell) and is sure to earn an anglophone fanbase.

Jess Arndt

Arndt's debut collection "Large Animals" (Catapult) will be published in May 2017 and was named as one of the most anticipated books of the year. We're predicting that Arndt will soon be a familiar name in bookstores.
