HÀ NỘI — Vietnamese-French writer Bùi Thị Hồng Vân (pen name Nuage Rose) met fans and students from the Alexandre Yersin High School at the Hà Nội French Culture Centre L’Espace yesterday.
The author used the opportunity to answer many questions regarding her book, titled Trois Nuage au Pays des Nenuphars (Three Clouds in the Country of Lotus), and to encourage young readers to learn more about Việt Nam’s history.
Her book traces the story of a small girl, who had to evacuate from Hà Nội during the American war of destruction against North Việt Nam (1964-75).
Trois Nuage au Pays des Nenuphars was awarded the French Writers Association’s "Most Favourite" title and has been introduced at a number of book fairs in Belgium, France and Switzerland. It was also recently made part of the syllabus for students at the Alexandre Yersin High School. — VNS
