Walking Books Tour: 17A Keong Saik Road by Charmaine Leung
Each ticket is inclusive of a copy of 17A Keong Saik Road (retail price S$19.90). Books will be distributed at the end of the tour.
Take a walk with Charmaine Leung, author of 17A Keong Saik Road, 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 district, Charmaine recollects the stories of the place and its people then. These include her personal accounts of the Ma Jies, the Pei Pa Zais (little pipas), and the Dai Gu Niangs—all marginalised and forgotten women of the past.
