Book reading - specially in groups - is like tapping into an infinite ocean of knowledge and experiences. Experiences which will ultimately make your own life richer and more meaningful.

Fariba Eghdami (March 15th, 1968) had been a book-reading promoter for 23 years. Proposing and performing various kinds of activities in many places ranging from school classes and among academic groups to companies and ministries, she encouraged people to read books. In 2012, she founded Jahak to publicize the culture of reading and communicating and now more than 1500 students participate in Jahak project of Reading Marathon.
