2022 Young Readers Festival

Welcome to the 11th annual Hong Kong International Young Readers Festival (YRF)! Every year the YRF brings writers to schools for talks and workshops, creating unique opportunities for young people to meet and interact with some of the world’s greatest storytellers. 

This year the YRF will run from 7th to 25th March, featuring local and international children’s authors in a flexible, hybrid programme for children of all ages. Hong Kong schools can book in-person or virtual author visits to support life-wide learning, creative writing, English curricula and language skills. We are also excited to offer three multi-school events with headline authors Michael Morpurgo, Elena Favilli and Malinda Lo.

Book before 4th February (Friday) to get 20% off multi-school events with Michael Morpurgo, Elena Favilli and Malinda Lo! This promotion only applies to Michael Morpurgo, Elena Favilli, and Malinda Lo’s events, not to be used in conjunction with the School Subsidy Scheme. The Festival reserves the right to a final decision in case of dispute.

We are grateful to the Standing Committee on Language Education and Research for their continued support.
