Hong Kong International Literary Festival 2020 – Coming this November…

Posted: August 21st, 2020 | No Comments »

Despite everything – Covid-19, NSL, typhoons…it’s happening. This November is the Hong Kong International Literary Festival’s 20th anniversary. This year it will be a hybrid festival of live and online events. From 5th – 15th November we will present more than 70 events featuring writers and speakers from around the world. Join us to hear your favourite authors and discover new voices and ideas. 

The flexible hybrid format means people can attend no matter what the COVID-19 situation in November. We hope it will be possible for people to enjoy the festival atmosphere at our live events, and we are also offering a fantastic virtual line-up so that people can attend at home with their family, friends or book club.

Our 20th edition theme ‘Present Tense/Future Perfect’ explores in fiction and non-fiction how the world is responding to issues such as health, inequality and climate change, as well as possible future directions for humanity and the planet.

PS: I’ll be there talking old Shanghai too – virtually, both in time and space!
