There Was and There Was Not: Telling Armenian Stories

May 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

There Was and There Was Not:
Telling Armenian Stories

by Susan Chakmakian

May  21 at 7 pm

Join us for an engaging and enlightening exploration of Armenian culture, history, and food for Armenians and non-Armenians alike. A stereotypical Armenian grandma, preparing food for a party (with a family member or two to assist her), introduces her non-Armenian guests to the quirks and eccentricities of her culture and proudly shares her people’s greatest achievements (with plenty of in-jokes for Armenians to chuckle about). At the same time, Armenian history is complex and often tragic, so our narrator also thinks about how to both honor that history and celebrate a vibrant, living culture at the same time, weaving in her own personal family stories as a real-life first-generation Armenian-American where they connect with the big picture to try to make sense of it all.
