Summary 內容: Hong Kong has been experiencing continuous unrest since the summer. Many of us may feel exhausted or even heartbroken. Sometimes we can hardly find an opportunity to express our feelings with others.
We invite you to join the Shared Reading session and share your true feelings and thoughts provoked by the literature. You DON'T need to prepare for the reading beforehand – just come with an open heart and be ready to explore the story with others.
