Hong Kong Book Fair

The annual Book Fair is organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and attracts more than 900,000 visitors over several days. The event that features seminars and author talks was first held in 1990.

Special section for art lovers

This year's Hong Kong Book Fair offers a special treat. With the introduction of the Arts Pavilion, art lovers can join workshops on multimedia drama, lithography, handicrafts and xiqu.

Giveaways spark concern

The sale of replica weapons and the giving away of ob scene items have sparked calls for tighter control over the publishing industry.

At last month's Hong Kong Book Fair, publishers gave away souvenirs with comics. Buyers could order 1.4-metre swords, and replica weapons in different sizes were on sale.

Focus on copyright

International copyright issues will come under the spotlight at this year's Hong Kong Book Fair.

Discount on Urban Council books

BOOK lovers can buy Urban Council publications at a 20 per cent discount at the 6th Hong Kong Book Fair taking place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The fair, organised by the Trade Development Council, is open daily from 9.30 am to 8 pm but will end at 6 pm on Monday.

CDs were genuine

I REFER to Back Chat (Sunday Morning Post, July 31) which claims the Hong Kong Trade Development Council knew ''fake'' compact discs were on sale at its recent Hong Kong Book Fair but could do nothing.
