HÀ NỘI — Sylvie Fanchette, a French author, will discuss her books featuring Vietnamese handicrafts on Friday at the Bookworm shop.
She is the author of Hà Nội, a Metropolis in the Making and Discovering Craft Villages in Việt Nam - Ten itineraries around Hà Nội (with Nicholas Steadman).
She will allow readers to join an investigation into the past development and future growth of Hà Nội, from villages to a globalised mega-city that continues to envelope rural communities.
The books, both published by Thế Giới (World) Publishers, have been popular among people who want to explore local craft environments.
The Bookworm is a well-known book cafe in Hà Nội, located at 44 Châu Long Street. — VNS
