HA NOI (VNS) — Le Petit Prince, one of the most beloved children's stories of all time, is coming to Ha Noi next month.
Starting from June 1 – International Children's Day – the 113-year-old Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi Hotel will host an exhibition, called Le Petit Prince's Journey, which is an old children's tale of a little boy fallen to Earth who encounters the strangeness of the adult world for the first time.
The month-long exhibition will feature scanned copies of the pages of the original manuscript produced by the book's author Antoine de Saint-Exupery; selections of artistic photography by Vincent Nguyen of locations around the world travelled by Saint-Exupery; and a rare colour film recording Saint-Exupery writing the story in Canada in 1942.
Sofitel organised the travelling exhibition as an opportunity to expose its work with the Saint-Exupery Foundation, a group that promotes initiatives to support children living in difficult environments. — VNS
