Passing of Mrs. Simin Behbahani, Recipient of the 2011 Farhang Heritage Awards!

It is with deep regret and sorrow that we learned about the passing of Mrs. Simin Behbahani, the most prominent contemporary Persian poet and the recipient of the 2011 Farhang Heritage Award.

Having been nominated twice for the Nobel Prize in literature and being the honoree of many international literary awards, she was one of the most outstanding figures of the modern Persian literature and widely regarded as the National Poet of Iran.

On behalf of the board of trustees and the entire Farhang Foundation family, we extend our heartfelt condolences to her family and friends in Iran and around the world.

Hooshang Pak MD
Chairman of the Award Committee
