With the theme “Lighting the Fire of Knowledge-Creating the Future”, the event is one of the activities organised to celebrate the 69th anniversary of the Capital Liberation Day (10th October) and the 70th anniversary of the Publication, Printing, and Distribution Day (10th October), and to implement the Government’s plan to develop the reading culture in Hanoi.

The book fair aims to raise public awareness of the importance of reading for enhancing knowledge and skills, fostering thinking, and cultivating personality, and ultimately instilling reading habits in families, schools, agencies, organizations, and communities.

The Hanoi Book Fair 2003 is anticipated to bring together local and international publishers, with around 200-250 stalls exhibiting a variety of books from comic books and novels to literature, political literature, and more. With something for everyone, bookworms are sure to have a great time!

The highlight of the book fair will be a bookshelf introducing the culture and history of Thang Long-Hanoi. As usual, the side activities of the event include book launch ceremonies, book trading activities, and book copyright exchange.

It’s a chance for book lovers to explore a vast selection of books and meet their favorite authors.

For many years, the Hanoi Book Fair has become an annual cultural event that draws great enthusiasm from the public. It is an opportunity for book enthusiasts to peruse an extensive selection of books and connect with their favorite authors.
