Reading the World

At the Federation we believe the power of reading as a way of cultivating the intellect, stimulating the imagination and encouraging innovation… Every year, we release new books at the Hong Kong Book Fair, and this year we take our readers on a journey of geographical discovery and adventure.

One can explore Greater Bay Area with GBA: Not Far Away which answers interesting questions with facts or look further afield in From Local to Global - Leading Changes. Travel to Taiwan and other destinations through the photographic journals, Good Morning, Island and Shutter Clicks. Other titles cover parenting, stress relief, the law related to young people and youth trends. Come and learn more! Visit us at 1A-B01, in the General Books Pavilion from 17-23 July. Beyond the books, are our young reporters and photographers, through a partnership with M21 and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council.

Discounts at 20% off for new books, up to 40% off for other publications
