SINGAPORE - In a new episode of That's Life podcast, host Lydia Vasko delves into Singapore publishing with Mr Edmund Wee, publisher of Epigram Books, and Mr Shan Rajaguru, international sales manager of South Asia for Harper Collins.

If we want more people to read, we need more bookstores, says Edmund Wee.
