VOV.VN - The Ministry of Information and Communications will host the first ever online book festival from April 19 to May 20 in celebration of the seventh Vietnam Book Day, which falls annually on April 21.
The ministry has decided to organize the event online due to the complicated developments of the COVID-19 epidemic which is spreading in the country.
Book365.vn will be selected to showcase books by publishing houses from across the country.
Moreover, events to mark the debut of new books, exchanges between authors and readers, along with activities aimed at raising funds to combat the COVID-19 will also take place.
Online book purchases will now happen over a one-month period, allowing bookworms to access new entries while staying at home as part of efforts to curb the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic.
