Hong Kong International Literary Festival
Book Swaps, Workshops, Signings & More!

For ten fantastic days this autumn, you can take the kids to the Hong Kong International Literary Festival which is in its 19th year running. With a variety of events including discussion, literary lunches and dinners, workshops, lectures, debates, book signings, and reading the festival will have an abundance to offer. The guest list for this festival is fantastic. Some of the authors attending that you might recognize are Markus Zusak, Helen Zia, John Boyne, Nury Vittachi, John Lanchester and Melanie Munungurr-Williams. These authors have written some of the best pieces of our day and the festival is the perfect opportunity to get to hear what they have to say first hand.
