Epigram Books: The People's Choice November 29 2011
The inaugural Popular Readers’ Choice Awards recognise Singapore’s favourite books as measured by sales and readers’ votes. We’re very pleased to note that of the 20 English books nominated, no fewer than 4 were published by Epigram Books! Not a bad showing for a young publisher! The nominees were: The End of Char Kway Teow, Archibald And the Blue Blood Conspiracy, Whoopie Lee and The Diary of Amos Lee 3.
We’re also excited to announce that The End of Char Kway Teow and The Diary of Amos Lee 3 each took third place in the Adult and Children categories, respectively. Congratulations to authors Dr Leslie Tay and Adeline Foo!
Amos Lee, The TV Series, out in 2012! September 27 2011
The Diary of Amos Lee, the book your kids just can’t get enough of, is being turned into a TV series! Okto, the channel that is set to launch the show next year, recently conducted auditions at various malls across the island.
Watch this memorable audition by 11-year-old Gaius Ong.
Interviewer: “Why do you like the books?”
Gaius: “Actually, I don’t have the book, but I go to Popular, take the book and read.”
For the record, Epigram Books encourages you to buy the books. Read all about our series here. The series now includes a book by Amos’ attention-loving sister, Whoopie Lee, who will set the record straight on the outrageous tales perpetuated by her older brother.
