Hong Kong International Book Fair

Claretian Publications has participated in the Book Fair for the second consecutive year, thanks to the generous support of a group of collaborators in our mission. 

Recent Apostolic Exhortations and Encyclicals by Pope Francis were the most sought-after titles in our stall. Also, a book on assistance to leper colonies in China written by one of our partners, describing the experiences of a group of friends who were accompanying the leprosy affected for a period of over five years, was one of the popular books in the stall this year. 

Hong Kongers take the book fair seriously! With in the Fair you can hardly walk free - it is a sea of ​​people, especially in the children's section. Kids' education is of paramount importance for the parents.

If not for the hard work and generous contributions from our collaborators, participation in a book fair of its magnitude would not have been possible for the Claretian Publications with the limitted resources and personnel in Hong Kong and Macau.  almost everything is in Chinese. 

It is not just books, but even magic sells! Fr. Jojo amuses the children with  his magic tricks...
