Comment from Jeffrey Clapp, Director of One City One Book Hong Kong 2020:
As soon as we began discussing the possibility of establishing a “One City One Book” community reading project in Hong Kong, many people suggested that My City was the ideal choice. When it came time to translate the project title into Chinese, Xi Xi’s classic book suggested the translation “我城我書”, which we ultimately chose.
We had already decided to begin our project with Shaun Tan’s graphic novel The Arrival, but in our project’s second year, My City was an easy pick for the project’s advisory board. The 2020 project features a new audiobook version of My City, this “living exhibit,” many community events, and an academic conference at EdUHK.
