The first Vietnam Book and Reading Culture Day opened on Nguyen Hue Pedestrian Street in District 1, Ho Chi Minh City on Tuesday night.

Officials held a ceremony on the pedestrian street to celebrate the commemorative day, which is observed annually on April 21 under a government decision issued last year.

A series of activities promoting reading culture are scheduled to take place from now through April 24.

In the first-of-its-kind-run, the event has attracted more than 20 publishing houses throughout the country.

There are also exhibitions featuring copies of rare books, which are kept at the General Sciences Library of Ho Chi Minh City, and digital books and audio books.

In addition, many exhibitions of children’s books, books on primary teaching methods, business books, Nobel prize-winning books, limited edition books, and special editions will also take place during the event.
