HCM CITY (VNS) — Director and author Viet Linh will introduce her new books at talk shows in HCM and Ha Noi.
Entitled O Day Co Nang (There's Sun Here) and Nam Phut Voi Ga Xep (Five Minutes with Railway Station), the books were published by Tre (Young) Publishing House.
The talk shows will be held at Saturday Coffee and Lotus University in HCM City tomorrow and December 20.

Viet Linh is a prominent director of Vietnamese cinema and the south's first female director.
Her first film, Phien Toa Can Chanh An (The Court), focused on social problems and created a very strong impression when it was released in 1987. Linh has since directed dozens of serious dramas, including Me Thao Thoi Vang Bong (Glorious Time in Me Thao Village) and Chung Cu (Living Quarter), which won prizes at local and international film festivals. — VNS
