We were honoured to have Professor Wang Gungwu to be the first speaker for the HKUL Centenary Book Talk Series. Professor Wang shared with us some imaginaries that explore various possible "dreams" in the history of the University, of its academics past and present and its alumni, and also about HKU's "national" and international links. We were also pleased that the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Lap-chee Tsui had officiated at the event.
