2019 Young Readers Festival Schools Programme

The 2019 Hong Kong International Young Readers Festival is now open for application!

Every year we bring Festival authors to schools for talks and workshops, creating unique opportunities for young people to meet with the writers they love. In 2018, we worked with 66 schools to connect with over 10,000 students, which is a 28 percent increase from 2017.

We strongly believe that literature should be a vital component of every child’s education regardless of his or her background and reading ability. By connecting excellent writers of international renown with young readers, we hope to promote higher levels of literacy in Hong Kong and to nurture a generation of outward-looking, globally engaged citizens.
