We book you, Joseph Schooling! Olympic champ to hold book signings to raise fund for children from low-income families

Calling all Schooling fans out there, Joseph Schooling will be holding two book signings in Singapore in November to help raise funds for The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (STSPMF).

The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (STSPMF) helps provide financial assistance to children from poor homes.

The two books featured are 'Schooling Joseph' and 'From Kid to King'. 

Schooling will be signing 20 copies of limited-edition, hardcover copies of 'Schooling Joseph', at SPH's News Centre in Toa Payoh North on Nov 21. 

'Schooling Joseph' is a book written by veteran sports journalists Rohit Brijnath and Chan U-Gene.

The 148-page book, available in bookshops from Nov 12 at $27.82 (including GST), shows Schooling’s life journey and road to success. 

For the little ones and those who are young at heart, 'From Kid To King' is a 40-page book penned by The Straits Times News Editor Marc Lim and illustrated by freelance artist Darel Seow.

The book, now available at all leading bookstores, illustrates colourful drawings of Schooling’s olympic victory and love for swimming.

The book also has activity pages at the end for kids and retails for $16 (including GST). 

Schooling will be reading 'From Kid to King' to a group of STSPMF beneficiaries, and also sign some books for those who buy them at the event from 1pm to 3pm. 

Said Schooling in a press release statement: 

"I really wanted to share my story because, more than anything, I want people to know that anyone can achieve great things as long as they set their minds on it and give it their absolute best.

"Because I’m just like everyone else - a Singaporean boy with a big dream.

"I hope my story can inspire readers. This is also my way of saying thanks to everyone who has stood by me all these years."
