Time: 7:00pm
Venue: Rumpoles Bar, Level 2 Hotel Jen Tanglin, 1A Cuscaden Rd, Singapore 249716

Any Ordinary Day is by Leigh Sales, well-known Australian journalist and television host. At the age 40 her charmed lucky life ended when she 'suffered a uterine rupture - a tear the size of a cricket ball - in the upper left side of her uterus. A rare and often fatal complication of pregnancy, even medical textbooks call it "catastrophic", thanks to its "high incidence of foetal and maternal morbidity" . . . Miraculously, both Sales and her baby son, James, survived.' (Sydney Morning Herald),

This was the first in a series of events that led her to 'ponder the nature of trauma and how people face tragedy'.

Venue: The Tea Lounge, Tanglin Club

Transcription by Kate Atkinson is the third book following on from Life After Life and A God in Ruins set during the Second World War.

According to the Guardian it 'continues this exploration of the lies and inventions that make up a life, particularly during a time when all prior certainties - including identity - have been upended'.

The main character is Juliet Armstrong who works for the British Secret Service and 'has more than her share of such lies' shifting as she does between various identities.
