Proud to be BINUSIAN Authors
Do you know that BINUS SCHOOL Serpong has a lot of talented authors? On our last Author talk in early October 2016, we had Shazia (5C), Nina (4E), and Ms. Astrid (BINUSIAN parent) who shared about their books and writing experience. This month, we also have Ms. Rizki Raindriati a.k.a. Kiki Rahman, who just launched her new book, “Wonderful Life”.
Wonderful Life is the memoar of Amalia Prabowo. The memoar tells the period in her life when her son, Aqil was diagnosed with dyslexia. That memoar was published on April 2015 by KPG (Kepustakaan Populer Gramedia). KPG and Visinema&Co then decided to make a movie inspired by that memoar. They then hired Ms. Jenny Jusuf, a Citra (Indonesian Movie Award) winner to write the movie script. On June 2016, nearly at the end of the movie making process, KPG wanted to also make a novel to support the movie. Ms. Rizki was asked to write the novel based on the original screenplay by Jenny Jusuf.
Ms. Rizki felt so fortunate that the opportunity during the school holiday and KPG gave her the privilege to really explore and develop the characters. Ms. Rizki was given a month to write it, but she managed to write the novel within just 9 days. Wonderful Life is a truly entertaining, inspiring and enlightening novel to read.
