Award-winning investigative journalist Dawn Anahid MacKeen spent over a decade writing the story of her grandfather, Stepan, and his escape from the deadly mass deportation of Armenians during World War I. Longing for a fuller picture of his life, she traveled to Turkey and Syria, using her grandfather's newly discovered journals as a guide, to reconstruct his journey to the far reaches of the Ottoman Empire. Part reportage, part memoir, The Hundred -ear Walk: An Armenian Odyssey alternates between Stepan's tale of resilience and Dawn's remarkable journey, giving us a rare eyewitness account of the twentieth century's first large-scale genocide.

 

New Yorker staff writer Raffi Khatchadourian joins Dawn in conversation and Nancy Kricorian, author of All the Light There Was,  introduces the evening.  

 

This event is free and seating is first-come, first-served. Doors will open at 6pm. Books will be available for purchase with a 15% discount.
