Kay Mouradian’s mother Flora was only fourteen years old when she and her family—and twenty-five thousand other Armenians—were forced to leave their homes. “Traveling over the same deportation route to the deserts of Syria where more than a million Armenians perished…Flora’s voice is that of all victims and survivors…’I am my mother’s voice,’ says Dr. Mouradian, ‘and this is her story.’”

1 Response for “Love Our Authors”

  1. I am really looking forward to meeting the wonderful writers in our community. Kat, you have a book. Just this afternoon I was admiring the display and there you were.

    This is a real celebration; I hope I can trade some of my books for others, but I told myself to bring money too. Hooray for all writers and celebrants of The Book!
