Collection of stories based on Saadi's "Gulistan" sees the light

A collection of stories taken from the "Gulistan" poem written by the greatest classic of Persian literature, Saadi Shirazi, has been published under the title "Halwa and Rainbow”.

Saadi was a renowned poet, thinker, Sufi, author of many poems. His most famous works are "Gulistan" and "Bustan", where he delicately and elegantly expressed the truths of the worldly wisdom and quoted some personal anecdotes.

"Halwa and Rainbow" is a part of the "Persian Tales" series, whose first book was a collection of parables “What do you call the grape?” by Jalal ad-Din Rumi published in early 2021.

The book was prepared for publication by the Sadra publishing house and published with the support of the Ibn Sina Foundation in cooperation with the Hayyam Cultural Center.
