SIBU: The three books penned by Sibu-born author Ann Chin Kit Suet is slated to be officially launched at RH Hotel here on Oct 12.
Second Finance Minister Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh has been invited to launch the books, which are written in English.
This was announced during a press conference at Guangning Association here yesterday. Also present were association chairman Kong Tze Ling, Penghulu Ten Kim Loong and Chin’s family members. Chin’s first book `Diary of a Bereaved Mother’ was published in Kuching in April 2011. It tells of a mother’s trauma sitting for 55 days by her new born son Andrew who was struggling for breath. She loved him, but was unable to help him.
Rebecca Blithe, who received the book, wrote: “For parents undergoing similar experiences, this book can be a great comfort. For health professionals in this field, I would see it as essential reading.”
Chin’s second masterpiece ‘From China to Borneo and Beyond’ was published in February this year. It tells of two families, Chans and Kongs, and traced their history from 1907 in Kwang Zhou, China, to the jungles of Borneo.
It also touched on the Opium war, virgin tropical jungles, World War II, Colonial era and the communist insurgency.
Chin’s latest effort ‘Mail Order Bride’ was published in July. It embodies the darker side of today’s social issues that could arise in any big city from obsession, mail order bride, murder, suicide, toy boy, con Romeo, mother-daughter rivalry, paedophile, child pornography, prostitution, modelling, fraud, childhood shenanigans, runaway street kids, anorexia, nervosa, teen pregnancy street kids and boy racers.
