Booth introducing Ikeda's books at Hong Kong Book Fair 2010

HONG KONG, China: Oxford University Press (Hong Kong) has published a traditional Chinese edition of Wakaki hi no dokusho (tentative title: Books of My Youth), a collection of essays in which Daisaku Ikeda examines the personalities, worldviews and belief systems of such authors as Victor Hugo, Alexandre Dumas, Jean Jacques Rousseau and Eiji Yoshikawa.

In addition, SGI-Hong Kong sponsored a booth to introduce Mr. Ikeda's works at the Hong Kong Book Fair 2010, which was organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from July 21-27, 2010. Over 180 of his works were featured and included Choose Life: A Dialogue as well as Chinese editions.

More than 500 organizations from 20 countries participated in the week-long book fair, which is the largest of its kind held in Asia and drew some 900,000 visitors.
