The event’s theme “Leaving from the city for national salvation” honors the 100th anniversary of Ho Chi Minh who left the country in 1911 to seek ways for national salvation from the French colonists.

The 9th national poetry day at Hanoi's Temple of Literature (Van Mieu-Quoc Tu Giam) also commenced on the same day.

The poetry show will present to readers, children books and collections of poems by Cao Xuan Son, Nguyen Thi Huong Ly, Duong Thuan, Le Hong Thien, Nguyen Chau, Nguyen Thi Mai, Ngo Gia Thien An and Dang Chan Nhan published by the Kim Dong Publishing House.
