World Book Day Celebrated in Kashan

World Book Day (also known as International Day of the Book) is a yearly event held on April 23 and organized by UNESCO to promote reading, publishing and copyright. It was celebrated for the first time in 1995.
Many countries commemorate the day with ceremonies and festivals. To mark the occasion in Iran, the Department of Culture and Islamic Guidance of Kashan, Isfahan Province, arranged a  program bringing together poets and writers at the mausoleum of celebrated poet and painter Sohrab Sepehri (1928-1980) in Mashhad Ardehal, a city in Neyasar, a rural district of Kashan. It was held on April 21 to coincide with the 38th death anniversary of the poet, Tasnim News Agency reported.
Sepehri is greatly revered as one of the foremost Iranian poets and painters of the twentieth century.
