In order to promote the reading habit, as well as to fulfill the reading culture among residents in Binh Duong, especially among students, the very first extensive book fair was held in Binh Duong New City Hikari from 15th to 17th of November.
This year’s event theme is “Book – Embrace the Changes”. Regardless of the fact that it was the first time to be held, the fair featured many popular publishers and stationery companies, e.g. Kim Dong, Fahasa, Alpha Books,… Thousands of books across various genres were ready for our beloved visitors. In addition to special discounts for several types and give-aways, performances by students from universities in Thu Dau Mot also excited the fair-goers.
Guest exchange was also our icing on the cake. We welcomed Nguyen Phong Viet to the author’s exchange at 18:30 Nov 15th and Nguyen Canh Ba Son, the renowned IT engineer who gave up the American Dream in Silicon Valley, now CEO – co-founder of Datbike start-up in the field of electric bike on Nov 17th at 10:00.
Besides, so as to broaden the reading spirit in the youths, families, schools and society on the whole, we co-organised with the Binh Duong Youth Union and Student Union to raise fund and donate over 200 books for the making of a library for the children in Bau Bang.
Accordingly, the Book Fair ended with more than 3,000 visitors welcomed and over 7,000 books sold in 3 days.
