Book Week launched in HCM City

HCM City, October 23 (VNA) – The Ho Chi Minh City General Publishing House has launched the 11th Book Week to celebrate its 40th anniversary. 

The Book Week is hosted at three areas, including General Publishing House’s bookstore No 1 on District 1’s Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street, General Publishing House’s bookstore No 2 on District 4’s Nguyen Tat Thanh Street and booth M01 on District 1’s Nguyen Van Binh Book Street. 

Twenty-nine new book titles from writers such as Pham Phuong Thao, Nguyen Dinh Tu, An Chi, Huynh Ngoc Trang and Nguyen Thi Hau will be introduced during the Book Week. 

Two titles have been published just in time to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution (1907 – 1917). 

According to the organisers, a discount is applied to both hard copies and e-books in an effort to encourage more people to read. 

In addition to displaying books, two meetings with writers Nguyen Dinh Tu and Nguyen Thi Hau will be held. 

The event welcomes visitors until October 28.
