我城我書 / One City One Book Hong Kong is a community reading programme initiated by the Centre for Popular Culture in the Humanities at The Education University of Hong Kong, which aims to encourage as many people as possible, to read and discuss the same book at around the same time. Each year students, scholars, readers of all kinds will focus their attention on one single book.

The book chosen for the first ever One City One Book initiative in Hong Kong (2019) is The Arrival (2006), a wordless graphic novel by the Chinese Australian graphic novelist Shaun Tan.

The Arrival is a particularly appropriate choice for the first One City One Book initiative in Hong Kong. Shaun Tan's wordless graphic novel transcends language barriers and tells an immigrant story with resonant themes of migration, belonging, and hospitality. This celebrated book appeals to people of all ages, be they children, young adults or adults.
