Persian literature aficionados and literati from across Iran came together at the mausoleum of Persian poet Sadi in Shiraz on Sunday to celebrate Sadi National Day.

The director of the Center for the Study of Sadi, Kurosh Kamali Sarvestani, delivered a speech, which was followed by recitations from Sadi’s poetry.

Sadi enthusiasts also visited exhibits of photos and documents on Sadi, and calligraphy works that were organized at the mausoleum of Sadi.

The Fars National Library and Archives in Shiraz also hosted several academic sessions on Sadi’s poetry, which were attended by Asghar Dadbeh, Nasrollah Purjavadi, Ziba Eshraqi, Hossein Karami and several Sadi scholars.

In addition, the Book City Institute in Tehran organized a conference last week to discuss affinities between Sadi and leading German dramatist and poet, Friedrich Schiller.

The conference is scheduled to be held in Shiraz and the German cities of Berlin and Weimar.

One of the greatest figures of classical Persian literature, Sheikh Muslih od-Din Sadi Shirazi is famous worldwide for his Bustan (The Orchard) and Gulistan (The Rose Garden).
