《诗心牵影》POETIC HEARTS, LINGERING SHADOWS
《诗心牵影》是为庆祝新加坡书籍理事会于2018成立50周年而特别出版, 新书发布会也为配合世界书香日（4月23日）及新加坡开埠 200 周年而举行。与此同时，理事会也将举办一个画作及诗歌的展览，假新加坡华族文化中心从4月27日至5月5日展出。
In a first collaboration, painter Zheng Lin Lin and poet Cheng Jun have come together to launch their book Poetic Hearts, Lingering Shadows (Shi Xin Qian Ying) that features a collection of their ink paintings and poetry. The realism captured by Zheng’s works of familiar local landmarks is paired with the evocative poetry by Cheng Jun. The juxtaposition of the two art forms invites the readers to look at their surroundings afresh with a poetic heart. This anthology is centred on the theme “harmony in multiculturalism”, reflecting Singapore's history and diverse cultures.
The special publication of Poetic Hearts, Lingering Shadows marks the 50th anniversary of the Singapore Book Council in 2018, while the book launch is held to mark World Book Day (23 April) and in conjunction with the Singapore bicentennial. As part of the book launch, there will be an exhibition of the ink paintings and poetry at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre from April 27 to May 5.
