100 WRITERS _____ See you at the Asian Festival of Children's Content 2019, and check out these other book launch / storytelling sessions by my friends

Note: This post is part of my 100 WRITERS project.

It's time once again for the Asian Festival of Children's Content! I've always enjoyed myself at this event. Here's a post about what I did at the AFCC back in 2015. And here's my post for 2016. And this is 2017.

For 2018, though, I did post this introduction to the event, but I posted my event photos on Instagram, not on this blog. I shared this crazy video that LocalBooksSG did for me, and this is me with fellow speakers Cynthea liu and Kristi Wientge, and this is me with a bunch of really cool illustrators guys: Josef Lee, James Tan and Favian Ee.

As for this year (it's happening next week, actually), I will be moderating a panel discussion about something very close to my heart: science fiction! From Asia!

Session info:

Southeast Asian YA Science Fiction and Fantasy: We Do Exist! (Panel)
Joyce Chng, Gabriela Lee, Koen Setyawan 
Moderator: Don Bosco

What is Southeast Asian YA science fiction and fantasy? Who writes them? This panel of writers will share their  experience and journey in writing science fantasy fiction for young adults inspired by the Southeast Asia region.
