SWAPPITY SWAP SWAP. The Moon is a place where all can gather and revel in solace; share and absorb, consume and create. And at the centre of it all is our great big love of books. As the busy shopping season rounds the corner, it’s important to remember that the spirit of giving can be every bit as fun as buying! Dust off your library and jingle your way down to The Moon on the afternoon of 22nd December, 2pm - 6pm, for some good old-fashioned book swappin’. Come trade a book or two with other friendly humans (or with our second-hand library!) and sip on our seasonal warm peppermint mocha! If you’re lucky, some of our Moon Maidens may even break out into a Christmas song.

So pop on down for a browse, a swap, or just lounge the afternoon away with us on The Moon. This is a free event, and all are welcome! We hope to see you there.

P.S We’ll be accepting children’s books donations for our “Sponsor A Reader” collaboration with Readable SG as well! Find out more on our socials."

Vogon Poetry Night

VOGON POETRY NIGHT AT THE MOON: 
A CELEBRATION OF EXTREMELY BAD POETRY

HOSTED BY Illi and Joses Ho 
FEATURING: Ng Yi-Sheng, Kok Wei Liang, Jennifer Champion, Shivram Gopinath, Atiq Lukman, Anukriti Banerjee & Stephanie Dogfoot 

WHAT? 
Vogons are an alien race known for creating extremely bad poetry. Described by the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy as ‘not evil, just bad-tempered and bureaucratic’ they are responsible for having the 3rd worst poetry in the world and using this to torture people. 

On November 16, come to The Moon for a celebration of the all bad poetry we’ve all written and kept locked away, and most toe-curlingly awful, so-bad-it’s-almost-good rhymes found in Singapore. 

OPEN MIC!
Come join our open mic and bring your awful teenage angst-poems, hilariously bad haikus, your sloppy sonnets, your wretched rhyme schemes, your vomit-worthy verse….and you get the idea. But come at your own risk! People at Vogon poetry readings have been known to gnaw their own legs off. Open micers get 5 minutes. Sign up below! 

ENTRY: $5 

ORGANISED BY:
