Join us for a reading group session focused on the classic work of Hong Kong ecological writing, Bison by Ng Hui Bun. Dr. Winnie Yee of Comparative Literature at HKU and Dr Jamie Wang of Literature and Cultural Studies at EdUHK will be on hand to offer their reflections on two of the book’s best stories, and to think together about writing nature, the city, and the environment in Hong Kong and the region. All are welcome!
