On April 18, at 6pm, L’Espace will host a book launch for Voyage en Europe – Foire de Marseille, exposition internationale à Paris (Journey to Europe – Marseille Fair, International Exhibition in Paris) by Nguyễn Công Tiễu, a Vietnamese scientist specialising in agricultural research before 1945.

The book is a collection of Tiễu’s travel articles that were published in Volume 170-230 of the Journal of Science from September 1937 to May 1940.

Tiễu recounted his trip to France to the Marseille fair and the Congress of Scientific Research of the French Overseas Territories. A description of his experiences during his stay in France encourages interest in travel and provides useful knowledge: the fair, the atmosphere of the Congress, historical and cultural sites and beautiful landscapes in Marseille and Paris.

The free entry event will feature three speakers, including Prof Nguyễn Hữu Sơn and Dr Phùng Ngọc Kiên, both from the Institute of Literature and Prof Chu Hảo, director of the Knowledge Publishing House. — VNS
