On 5 December (it’s a Saturday) we have a treat for the children â€“ a story-telling sing-a-long with Art Fazil and Oniatta Effendi right here at Wardah Books.
We’ll start at 2pm and end around 3pm. Oh, and Kak Oni will be reading from one of Idris Shah’s illustrated books, “The Boy Without A Name”. Its suitable for 7 year-olds or older.
Art will be doing some numbers from his new CD, Syair Melayu.
Invite your friends and neighboursâ€¦ bring your children (or someone else’s).
See you there

Wardah is hosting an afternoon of Electric Ghazal by Alfian Sa’at. Ghazal is an ancient form that consists of rhyming couplets. While ghazal creative expression is diverse, the central themes are traditionally love and longing.
Alfian will read some English ghazal from his own collection of verse, ‘A History of Amnesia’. Do drop by on 28 November, 5pm at Wardah. If you have some of your own ghazal, don’t be shy to share. (In case you’re wondering, there will be no band of backing musicians.)
