Writing is often a means of asking and answering tough questions. For Krishna Udayasankar, many of those questions have to do with her complex, multi-cultural, multi-national identity. Her The Aryavarta Chronicles series of books has been a way of recasting an Indian epic tale to remove all divinity and make it relevant to the socio-political context of current times. In her latest novel, 3 - a work described as "Haruki Murakami with an LED focus" by media, she takes on her struggle to map her identity as immigrant Singaporean—not unlike our nation's founder Sang Nila Utama.

Join Krishna Udayasankar as she talks about the questions that drive her writing and ask her some questions of your own—who knows, you might inspire her next work! This session will also be moderated by guest writer Theophi Kwek (Theophilus).

This AfterWords will be taking place at Level 2, Programme Zone of Marine Parade Library.
