HCMC - Winners of the 2019 Good Book Awards were announced at a ceremony held at the Rex Hotel Saigon on September 15.

The event was co-organized by the Institute for Research on Education Development and the OpenEdu initiative, and attended by hundreds of scholars, businesspeople, and book lovers.

After over five months of assessment, the jury comprising leading literary critics, professors, experts, authors and poets selected the best books in seven categories including education, research, economics, management, literature, children's books and new discoveries.

In its ninth edition, the Good Book Awards featured a new category called “Books for the youth voted by the young book lovers community”, which aimed to bring good books closer to young readers. 

Addressing the ceremony, educator Gian Tu Trung, head of the organizing committee, said: “The annual Good Book Awards is expected to introduce good books to readers, encourage the creation of high-quality Vietnamese literature, and promote reading in the community. It is also a chance for us to honor writers, translators and publishing houses for their contributions to fostering the reading culture in Vietnam.”
