Attention fans of mystery novels! Simon Chesterman, a professor and dean of the National University of Singapore’s Faculty of Law, will be joining us at Kinokuniya Singapore Main Store on Saturday, 16th July, 2.00 p.m., to promote the first book of a trilogy for young adult readers, titled, Raising Arcadia. Local author Adrian Tan, best known for his works, The Teenage Textbook & The Teenage Workbook, will also be present to host this event.

Raising Arcadia tells the story of an exceptionally observant sixteen-year-old girl named Arcadia Greentree, who is aware of her surroundings in a way that sometimes gets her into trouble – and then out of it again. This book captures the protagonist’s observational skills and puts the reader next to her as she confronts mystery, danger and tragedy.

Are you ready to indulge in a new mystery read to mark Singapore’s inaugural National Reading Day on 30th July 2016? If so, make it a point to pick up a copy of Raising Arcadia right away, then join us for this event on 16th July with Simon Chesterman to find out more about the author’s thought processes behind this book.
