Originally from Hanoi, 48-year-old Bich Hau has published nine short stories, in addition to a number of novels.
Her participation in the event comes following her recent release of an English-Italian bilingual poetry collection titled “Unknown”, which was released by Italy’s publishing house I Quaderni del Bardo.
Taking part in the European Poetry Festival 2020 offered Bich Hau the opportunity to produce a video in which to perform some of her poetry from “Unknown”.
The 10th version of the festival this year saw poets from 34 countries from around the world join the event, with participants coming from nations such as the Republic of Korea, Japan, Turkey, Macedonia, the United States, Canada, Colombia, Uruguay, and Switzerland.
Bich Hau was notable for being the only Vietnamese representative at the occasion.
