Book City Welcomes Ramadan

The central branch of the Book City Institute in Tehran has planned late-night programs during the first week of the fasting month of Ramadan (starts May 27), the ninth month of the Islamic calendar.
Located on Shariati Avenue, between Motahari and Beheshti Streets, the central branch will stay open till midnight, starting from tonight, Mehr News Agency reported.
The week-long program plans to celebrate the holy month of Ramadan observed by Muslims worldwide when people abstain from eating and drinking from dawn to dusk.
“When Ramadan coincides with spring or summer, the city is much livelier from sunset to dawn. I think more bookstores and cultural centers should have programs till midnight,” said branch manager Mojgan Raisee Amjad.
On the first night, a dramatic storytelling event has been organized. The second night (May 28) will have a story reading meeting, where critic, story writer and journalist Mohammad Hassan Shahsavari, 46, as well as playwright and screenwriter Chista Yasrebi, 49, will be present.
On May 29, a meeting is organized with Iranian cinema director and producer Rasoul Sadr Ameli, 63, and a number of cinema artists.
A national, traditional program is planned for Tuesday, May 30, and a special game for the following night (Wednesday) called ‘Mobiles Off, Let’s Just Play Tonight.’
Another story reading session is planned for the last night of the program on Thursday in which Persian novelist Moniroddin Beyrouti, 47, will participate as well as humor writer and journalist Ali Mirmirani, 45, whose pen name is Ebrahim Raha.
