The event, titled "Public Discourse: Truth and Trust", was organised as part of the Raffles Hall Alumni Learning series, and scheduled for 8:00pm on Sunday, Nov. 1. The event graphic also prominently featured a new book written by both men, PAP vs PAP: The Party's struggle to adapt to a changing S'pore.
