Taipei, April 25 (CNA) Causeway Bay Books, a bookstore originally based in Hong Kong selling books critical of Beijing and Chinese political leadership reopened in Taiwan Saturday, 20 months after it was closed due to political persecution.

The bookstore, situated on the 10th floor of a commercial building near Taipei's MRT Zhongshan Station, has an area of only 66 square meters but with a wide range of book selections, from coloring books for children to volumes tackling politics, some of which are forbidden in China.

It sells books on Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement in 2019 and on the situation in Tibet.

Lam Wing-kee (林榮基), the founder of Causeway Bay Books in Hong Kong, thanked Taiwan's government and the Taiwanese people for helping him to resurrect the store.    [FULL  STORY]
