Looking Back at Hong Kong: A Reading & Convo with Writers of/from Hong Kong
Watch a reading and panel discussion with Nicolette Wong, Xu Xi, Sharon Yam, Yeung Chak Yan, and Q.M. Zhang!
Amidst the reshaping of Hong Kong’s social, cultural, political and ideological landscapes, how do we re-envisage a city that exists in our memories? For those who have left their hometown—or the place they once called home—the question, “What does it mean to be a Hongkonger?” marks a constant shift between conflicting realities, identities, and perceptions. Beyond the act of remembering, how do we re-imagine our relationship with Hong Kong in the present and the future?
To mark the launch of the forthcoming book, Looking Back at Hong Kong: An Anthology of Writing and Art (Cart Noodles Press, 2021), writers who have called Hong Kong home will come together to read from their work and reflect on the profound changes and subtle transitions that have transpired in Hong Kong, both in recent times and over the past decades.
