Statement of Concern About Disappearance of Hong Kong Booksellers

The American Booksellers Association (ABA), the Association of American Publishers (AAP), the Authors Guild (AG), the European and International Booksellers Federation (EIBF), and PEN American Center (PEN) wish to express their extreme concern over news reports about the disappearance of five employees of a Hong Kong publishing company, Mighty Current, and its bookstore, the Causeway Bay Bookstore.  According to these reports, four of the employees disappeared in October, including the bookstore manager.  A fifth employee, Lee Bo, was reported missing last week.  Mighty Current is well-known for publishing books critical of the Chinese leadership.  Mighty Current books are sold by the thousands at the Hong Kong airport and other locations, including the company bookstore in Hong Kong’s Causeway Bay neighborhood.  They are particularly popular with tourists from mainland China, where the books are banned.Read more
