Crowd at BookFest

Held from 4-13 December, the festival will take place at Suntec Singapore Convention Centre, Hall 401 to 405.

This year’s theme “treasures” is a tribute to the importance of lifelong learning, translated from the well-known Chinese proverb, “书中自有黄金屋”, it signifies how success comes from knowledge through books. It is also symbolic of reading as a key to unlock the powerful treasures of knowledge and creativity and the vital role it plays in empowering and inspiring individuals and enriching communities.
