Dr Chow Yiu-fai’s book selected as top 10 good books by secondary students

周耀輝博士著作獲選中學生好書龍虎榜十本好書之一

One Body, Two Persons, a book written by Dr Chow Yiu-fai, Assistant Professor of the Department of Humanities and Creative Writing, was recently elected as one of the top 10 good books by secondary school students at the 27th Secondary School Students Good Book Election organised by the Hong Kong Professional Teachers’ Union.

Dr Chow is pleased to have received the award and said there are two reasons for his gratification. First, the award is a result of direct election of more than 40,000 students, and second, the “body” is a topic that he has been paying attention to. The winning entry is a collection of short stories that begin with different parts of the body, evoking readers’ thoughts about the body. He considers the award signifies that the topic of the body has entered the secondary school campus.

人文及創作系助理教授周耀輝博士的著作《一個身體兩個人》最近在香港教育專業人員協會主辦的「第27屆中學生好書龍虎榜」中,獲中學生投票選為十本好書之一。

周博士很高興著作獲獎,他說:「得到這個獎項有兩個特別開心的地方,一,是由四萬多同學直接投票的,二,是身體一向是我關注的主題,這本書寫的都是以各身體部位為出發點的短篇故事,誘發讀者更多對身體的想像,獲得這個獎,多多少少說明,身體這個主題已經帶進校園。」
