Gerakbudaya’s annual sale returns for its 2016 run this weekend, so if one of your resolutions is to buy cheaper books or read ones produced from around the region, look no further than this sale. The objective this time ’round is to introduce people to controversial stories that are inspiring, titles like Banana Punk Rawk Trails by Marco Ferrarese — the author of Nazi Goreng, Unbelievably Stupid Too by Kee Thuan Chye, and Fixi’s popular KL Noir series. Plus, there’s a book exhibition curated by publishers from Indonesia such as Resist, Komunitas Bamboo, YOI, and Lontar Foundation. The exhibition will cover stories relating to the history, politics, and cultural aspects of modern day Indonesia.
Date Thursday 14 January — Sunday 17 January ’16
Venue Gerakbudaya, PJ
