The 34th Hong Kong Book Fair, organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), will be held from July 17 to 23 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center, the HKTDC has announced.

This year's book fair will stage more than 600 cultural events onsite and off-site, including acclaimed writers' seminars and book launches to help promote a stronger reading culture in Hong Kong.

Sophia Chong, deputy executive director of the HKTDC, said that this year's book fair will be themed on film and television literature, with the tagline "Reading the World: Storytelling from Page to Screen," aimed at encouraging more locals and tourists to discover the joy of reading and appreciate the charm of Hong Kong's literary, film and television works, thus helping shape Hong Kong into an East-meets-West center for international cultural exchange.

The book fair will feature eight seminar series, with authors invited to share and exchange ideas on topics including theme of the year and renowned writers.

The book fair will run concurrently with the HKTDC Sports and Leisure Expo and HKTDC World of Snacks. With a single ticket, visitors can immerse themselves in the worlds of literature, sports and leisure activities and global snacks, with some 760 exhibitors across the three fairs.
