Debuting at number 2 on the Straits Times bestseller list, 'Travails of a Trailing Spouse' begins with Sarah, a lawyer in the US, quitting her job and moving to Singapore with her husband and children. They become part of a close-knit group of expatriates and enjoy evenings filled with Trivia Nights and drinks. When cracks appear in this seemingly perfect world, Sarah and her friends discover how complicated and varied life can be.

Stephanie Suga Chen is a former partner of a New York City-based investment fund who moved to Singapore as a 'trailing spouse' in 2012 with her husband, two children, and ageing cocker spaniel. She wrote the manuscript, signed a deal with Singapore's leading publisher, Straits Times Press, and released the book in one incredible year. Come hear about her amazing journey. Signed copies of the book will be available onsite for $18 (10% off the retail price).
