Printer-friendlyPrinter-friendly

Saturday, April 23rd, was designated by the United Nation's educational branch UNESCO as World Book and Copyright Day. And Hong Kong's own “ Reading Month ” is underway. Reading seems to be getting more popular, and it seems we're getting more, and bigger, bookstores than ever. We report on the changing face of bookselling in Hong Kong. Freeman Lau is a leading commercial designer, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Hong Kong Design Centre, and a practitioner of fine arts. Chairs have long held a special fascination for him. A new exhibition of his chair designs has just opened. Freeman talks to us about how he approaches both his design and fine art work. And finally, "Nearly Broadway" is a cabaret style show in which Broadway musicals are given a not entirely reverent treatment. Two of the cast are in the studio to tell us about the show, and to perform an excerpt.
