Reading on the Grass

Led by The House of Hong Kong Literature, “Reading on the Grass” returns to Freespace Happening with a new theme for each month. To join the Book Crossing, simply bring along books related to the monthly theme and share them with us, then choose books you would like to adopt! You can also borrow books that other people have shared and read them on the lawn – even if you don’t bring any yourself!
