This year, the world commemorates the centennial of the Armenian Genocide, which counted many noted writers and cultural leaders among the dead. A panel discusses this tragedyâ€”a glimpse into the darkest regions of the human soulâ€”and its significance as a â€œdark paradigmâ€ for later attempts by governments to silence writers and cultural leaders.Â This event will include readings of the works of Armenian writersÂ killed in 1915.
Sponsored by the Armenian Genocide Centennial Committee of America.
