HA NOI (VNS) — Psychology expert Dinh Doan, painter Pham Thu Thuy and MC Tran Xuan Quynh will discuss the new popularity of adult colouring books at The Book Talk No 3 in Ha Noi starting at 7pm today.

The event will be held at Manzi Art Space, 14 Phan Huy Ich Street in Ba Dinh District.

Since mid-2015, colouring books for adults have appeared in Viet Nam, including Vuong Quoc Muon Loai (Animal Kingdom), a bestseller in the UK featuring drawings of nature, birds and plants in black and white, and Thien Duong Nhiet Doi (Tropical Wonderland), both by British author Millie Marotta; and Mot Ngay Dep Troi (Beautiful Day) by South Korean author Park Young-Mi.

The books "have appeared on the top list of websites that sell books, and have created a ‘revolution' in entertainment", a press release from The Book Talk's organiser, Nha Nam Culture and Communications, said. — VNS
