World Book Day: Stories for Survival

It's World Book and Copyright Day today, celebrated annually on the 23rd of April, to promote reading, publishing and the protection of intellectual property through copyright. We explore all things books today, and also speak Matthew Yap, the winner of KISAH Futures writing competition, which was designed to gain an inside view of the experiences and thoughts occupying the Malaysian psyche during the COVID-19 pandemic.
