We are delighted to launch a new partnership with Bring Me a Book Hong Kong, who have worked with us on offering Chinese language authors and events, making the programme accessible to more students. Thanks to this collaboration and our flexible event formats, schools and teachers have many new ways to participate in the festival this year
“With all the disruption and challenges our students have faced due to school closures this past year, Bring Me a Book are so thrilled to be able to partner with the Young Readers Festival. We are excited to bridge cultural barriers with our Chinese author programme to bring joy and inspiration to more students, on their reading and writing journeys” said Pia Wong, Executive Director, Bring Me A Book Hong Kong.
Chinese language authors include Dai Yun from Singapore, Lin Po Ting from Taiwan and Feng Zikai Award winners Huang Li and Yu Liqiong from China, as well as Shana Cheung from Hong Kong.
Founded in 2006, Bring Me a Book Hong Kong is an award-wining literacy charity with a vision for all children to be read to, strengthening family and community bonds and creating a love of learning. By providing equal access to education through their library, training and author programs, not only removes economic barriers but also leads to raising our children of today to be empathetic, enquiring and engaged leaders of tomorrow.
