The Hong Kong International Literary Festival

Off-Festival Events

Apart from the Literary Festival each autumn and the Young Readers Festival each spring, the Hong Kong International Literary Festival hosts off-festival events bringing writers from around the world together with local writers and readers for lectures, workshops, readings, literary lunches and dinners, and panel discussions.

Off-Festival Events at various places around Hong Kong are happening. Please see individual event listings for more information.
