16 Apr 2014


UNESCO’s World Book Day on 23 April promotes reading, writing and the importance of book copyrights. Sun Hung Kai Properties’ SHKP Reading Club has an array of activities, including a Good Reads Game, school tours and young writer seminars, to encourage the young generation to be part of this global celebration and enjoy reading.

The Good Reads Game on Facebook will have 11 celebrities reading out excerpts from their favourite books for participants to try and guess the titles. The lineup includes former Director of Welfare and Secretary for Health and Welfare Elizabeth Wong Chien Chi-lien, Centaline Property Agency founder Shih Wing-ching, media veteran Susanna Cheung, radio presenter Shiu Ka-chun, social enterprise founder Vincent Wong, theatre studio artistic director Tang Shu-wing, picture book artist Jeanie Leung and Young Writers’ Debut Competition winners Rainbow Leung and Brownwhite, and judges Liu Wai-tong and Henry Chu.

The first 20 participants with the correct answers will win SHKP Reading Club gifts. Results will be announced on Facebook on 22 May 2014. Please visit www.facebook.com/YoungWriters4 for details.

The SHKP Reading Club is also visiting over ten primary and secondary schools to promote World Book Day and encourage students to enjoy reading for wider horizons. In addition, Young Writers’ Debut Competition winners will offer up their experience and stories at school seminars in April and May to inspire primary and secondary students to realize their aspirations of becoming writers.

Any organization interested in these activities or has enquiries, please contact the SHKP Reading Club by email (contact@shkpreadingclub.com) or phone (2511 3248).
