Tehran book fair to introduce Moradi Kermani’s latest story “Teaspoon”

April 24, 2019

TEHRAN – “Teaspoon”, the latest story by children’s book writer Hushang Moradi Kermani, will be introduced at a special ceremony during the 32nd Tehran International Book Fair tomorrow.

He is scheduled to attend the ceremony, which will be held at the pavilion of Moin Publications, to autograph copies of his book for readers, the director of the publishing company, Lima Saleh Ramsari, told the Persian service of MNA on Wednesday.

“The book contains several short stories which differ from the author’s previous works,” Saleh Ramsari said.

The stories in “Teaspoon” are set in the city, while the stories in Moradi Kermani’s previous works are concerned with issues in rural life, he added.

“I am sad to say that Moradi Kermani says ‘Teaspoon’ would be his last book and that he wants to quit writing because the stories upset him,” he mentioned.

Moradi Kermani’s works also appeal to adults. He is the author of numerous bestsellers such as “You’re No Stranger Here”, “The Water Urn” and “A Sweet Jam”.

Most of his works have been translated into English, German, French, Spanish, Dutch, Arabic, Armenian, Turkish and several other languages.
