Hong Kong International - Young Readers Festival 2015


The Hong Kong International Young Readers Festival 2015 has now ended.

This year, the Festival brought budding bookworms to fantastical worlds, real and imagined. Together, we spanned the globe: we climbed to the summit of Mount Everest, explored Hong Kong, and visited places that exist only the brilliant imaginations of our festival authors—and, of course, those of their readers.

The 4th edition of the Hong Kong International Young Readers Festival featured award-winning and bestselling writers in all genres, spanning fiction and nonfiction, adventure and realism. This year and every year, we are excited to share the stories and ideas of great international and local writers and thinkers, filmmakers and illustrators.

If you’d like to adventure with us, please sign up for our mailing list and save the date: the 5th Annual Young Readers Festival will be held from 7 to 18 March 2016, and it’s shaping up to be the best one yet.


Some people don’t know that the Festival organizes school visits in addition to our public events on the weekend. If you’d like to learn more about our Schools Programme, click here.
