1st Kuala Lumpur Alternative Bookfest
Venue: The Annexe Central Market
Date: 3 to 4 May 2008
Time: 12pm to 6pm (both days)
From Amir Muhammad's blog:
KLAB is ... basically a gathering of small, independent publishers who would like a popular venue to sell, launch and discuss books. We seek to fill 10-15 tables. Each table can be taken up by one publisher, or it can be shared between various people who each have books to sell.
There are many happenin' Malaysian books now being published; the trouble is, not many of them are readily available in the main bookshops. This is an opportunity to bring these books to the public, and to make the whole process fun lah.
As of April 7th, 18 spots have been taken and registration is now closed. Among the 18 participants are Silverfish Books, Kinibooks, Kakiseni, as well as the Malaysian branch of BookCrossing.com. Non-governmental organisations such as Amnesty International and Sisters In Islam will be there as well.
Keep an eye out on Amir's blog for more updates about the event.
