Tehran Municipality has established a center, titled House of Poetry and Literature, to focus on literature in the Abbasabad neighborhood.
The opening ceremony, organized by The Art and Cultural Organization of Tehrab Municipality, was held on sidelines of a commemoration organized for poets Parvin Etesami, Mahdieh Elahi Qomshei, Tahereh Saffarzadeh and Sepideh Kashani, on Friday.
Among the attendees were Director of the Art and Cultural Organization of Tehran Municipality Mahmud Salahi, and poets and writers including Abdoljabbar Kakai, Afshin Yadollahi and Nasser Feyz.
