Author Event at the Glendale Central Library, Monday, June 1st

West of the West
with Mark Arax &
Aris Janigian

Central Library Auditorium
222 E. Harvard Street
Monday, June 1st
7 pm

Almost a century ago, in the aftermath of the Armenian genocide, Yervant Janigian made his way from Turkey to the Great Central Valley, and soon convinced his nephew, Aram Arax, to join him. Together they began picking fruits and vegetables, and putting down roots.

Today, two generations later, their grandsons Mark Arax (West of the West: Dreamers, Believers, Builders, and Killers in the Golden State) and Aris Janigian (Riverbig: A Novel) offer probing reflections on the West.

Join us for an evening of reading and conversation with two of California's most important storytellers.
