Book release and reading of Tenny Arlen's book of Armenian poetry. Please join us to celebrate the publication of the first full-length volume of creative literature composed in Armenian by a US-born author. After over a century of Armenian-American community development, this is a landmark achievement by a UCLA alumna. It is also one of the first public outcomes of the emphasis that UCLA Narekatsi Chair’s Armenian program places on the concept of Armenian as a living and creative language in diaspora.
This hybrid event will also take place in person, at UCLA Bunche Hall, Room 10383. The book will be available for sale at the event.
This event is co-sponsored by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, UCLA Narekatsi Chair of Armenian Studies, UCLA Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, The Promise Armenian Institute at UCLA, and the UCLA Armenian Students' Association.
