The 2019 Hong Kong Book Fair will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Attention all book lovers! This year’s Hong Kong Book Fair will run from July 17-23 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, and Young Post has 10 pairs of VIP passes up for grabs. These special tickets are not available for sale to the general public, and will allow you and a friend to skip the queues via a special entrance.

The annual event will see some celebrated English-language authors come to the city to give talks about their works and the craft of writing. These include British sci-fi writer Emma Newman whose short story A Woman’s Place won the British Fantasy Society’s Best Short Story award in 2015. Another author that will be in Hong Kong is Natasha Pulley, whose historical fantasy novel The Watchmaker of Filigree Street won a Betty Trash Award in 2016.
