Book Talks under the 4th I·CARE Book Festival

The 4th I·CARE Book Festival Reading is Voyaging through Time and Space is aspired to foster a culture of literacy on campus, and to connect different CUHK people through sharing of books.

Reading takes us everywhere.  Reading biographies is seeing others' minds; reading history is travelling in time; reading about the nature is understanding other living beings.
