Next week starting Wednesday 18th July is also is also the Hong Kong Book Fair!
The annual Hong Kong Book Fair is entering its 28th year and hopes to attract readers from diverse cultural backgrounds. The main activity at the fair is, of course, shopping for books, but other attractions include e-learning resources, a copyright and publishing corner, and the spirituality zone. Nearly a million people visited the fair and this year it’s looking to be even bigger.
Every year, there is a theme related to “Reading the World.” Last year’s theme was “Travel: People, Places, and Passions,” encouraging attendees to travel the globe and learn new things from the comfort of their home through reading. This year’s theme is “What on Earth is Love?: Love Between the Lines.” Many Chinese romance authors will be attending to sign books, talk with fans, and give a seminar series about Romance Literature. There will also be an exhibit about Hong Kong romance literature and its evolution over the years.
The Book Fair is concurrent with the Sports and Leisure Expo, and purchasing a ticket to one fair will provide free entry into the other! After you wear yourself out playing and learning at the Sports and Leisure Expo, come over to the Book Fair for some learning and entertainment.
