Meanwhile, the Van Hoa (Culture) Newspaper run by the Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism will organize an art performance themed “Songs honoring Uncle Ho” on October 7 evening at the Hanoi Opera House. The event will be broadcast live on the Hanoi Radio & Television Broadcasting TV channel.

The same day, the Hanoi Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism in coordination with the Department of Education and Training are to announce winners of the Hanoi Reading Ambassador contest for local students. The contest aims to inspire and spread the passion for reading at schools and in the community.

On the occasion, the Kim Dong Publishing House has introduced two historical novel entitled “Nguoi Thang Long” (The People of Thang Long) and “Khuc khai hoan dang do” (Unfinished Victory) by writer Ha An, which tell stories about heroes in the Tran Dynasty (1225-1400) during the second battle against Mongol invaders.

Three other historical novels – “Que nguoi” (Strange land), “Muoi nam” (Ten years) and “Que Nha” (Hometown) by writer To Hoai, depict the land and people of Hanoi from the 20th century to the August Revolution in 1945.
