Reading as Self-Expression: Your personal good book
Reading provides us with lessons and wisdom to adapt to changes, allowing us to express ourselves via the perspective and voice of the author.
As we go through life experiencing different phases of growth, a book is only a good book when it speaks to us at the right moment, giving us the key to unlock the door right in front of us.
What is YOUR good book at this moment in life?
Join us in this ‘show and tell’ session where everyone brings a book and shares how the lessons from the book collide with and impact your life at this moment.
How does this session work?
We welcome everyone who loves to read, learn and connect to join this session. Everyone is welcome to share a book (can be a physical book or an e-book) that helps you to express yourself/ inspires you.
How much does it cost?
We hope to support the community during this time while covering the cost of running each event. Thus, we have created a few tiers of the contributions that you can choose based on your capacity. Any amount you contribute will be a huge motivation for us to keep producing quality contents!
RM 5 (this will help us cover the platform fee)
RM 15 (treat the facilitator a cup of coffee)
RM 25 (the extra will make new projects possible!)
