What’s New

Here they are – this year’s line-up of authors that feature both Hong Kong’s homegrown literary talent as well as well-known author, Morris GleitzmanWe regret that Isobelle Carmody has to cancel her trip to Hong Kong. But fantasy fans – fret not, as we now have one of Australia’s Favourite 20 Novelists, Kate Forsyth.

Other authors to look out for include UK’s Alan Gibbons, Hong Kong’s very own Reenita Malhotra and Jennifer Wong, and mother and daughter team from Singapore – Monica Lim and Lesley-Ann Tan.

Parents and Children

During the weekend on 15 and 16 March, parents can join in the fun with their kids in literary activities while kids get to meet some of their favourite authors. For parents keen to get some relief from all the exam stress, it’s an opportunity to meet Monica Lim, author of The Good, The Bad and the PSLE – Trials of an Almost Kiasu Mother. Tisa Ho, Executive Director, Hong Kong Arts Festival, described it as “a hilarious first-hand account of competitive parenting in Singapore”.


What has the media been saying about us and this year’s authors? Plenty! We have posted some features on our Facebook page so take a look.
