The Moon shines a light on the stories of so many wonderfully talented authors, creators and makers who may have slipped under the radar of the mainstream. Our selection highlights writers and stories who have been historically excluded from the centre of publishing and we pay special attention to books by writers of marginalised genders, writers of colour, queer writers, and writers who write in translation.

Come explore our diverse selection of titles across various genres from both the juggernauts of publishing and small indie presses. We also stock a variety of merchandise from creators based out of Singapore and the Southeast Asian region. You can always discover something new on The Moon.

Guest: Mrigaa Sethi

“As much as anyone might like to come in and talk about the literary qualities or the craft of the writing — and we do talk about those things — I’m also aware that a shared experience of queerness, or an isolated experience of queerness that’s reaching out for community, is the primary reason.⁠”

Cultural writer and storyteller Mrigaa Sethi is the latest guest on The Same Page with The Moon. She speaks with Ruby about co-founding the Queer Women’s Book Club, the power of communal reading, and her most recent project on Instagram, Poems Before Bedtime.⁠
