Launch of Literary Anthology PEN Hong Kong’s Chinese Edition: 香港二十

Why We Recommend it

Following a successful crowdfunding drive, PEN Anthology’s 20/20 Reflections on a Borrowed Space has been translated into Chinese, and this event marks the release of this version.


Hong Kong 20/20: Reflections on a borrowed place was released last year to mark the 20th anniversary of the handover of Hong Kong from Great Britain to China.

The book features some of the city’s most prominent and creative literary and artistic minds, bringing together poets, writers, academics and artists to reflect on Hong Kong’s past and present, and to imagine its future.

The book offers a rich mix of poetry, essays, fiction and art. This edition has been been translated into Chinese, and will be launched in Kubrick Cafe, at an event in which featured writers will be invited to speak.

Among the speakers will be esteemed poet Tammy Ho, who often writes thoughtful works on Hong Kong’s past, present and future.



When: 3 Mar 2018 - 3 Mar 2018 Where: Cafe Kubrick – Public Square St, 3 – Yau Ma Tei
