Three distinguished American-Armenian poets will read from their works in a literary evening on Wednesday March 13, 2013 at the Zohrab Center in New York. Abraham Terian, Lola Koundakjian, and Gregory Djanikian will read from their work in English and Armenian.
Dr. Abraham Terian, a native of Jerusalem, is Professor Emeritus of Armenian Theology at St. Nersess Armenian Seminary. An internationally renowned Armenologist and theologian, his poetry represents an significant aspect of his creative output, if less well known than his scholarly writings.
Lola Koundakjian is an internationally regarded and published poet whose work has been translated into Ukrainian and Spanish.
Gregory Djanikian, Director of the Creative Writing Program at the University of Pennsylvania, and a native of Alexandria Egypt, has been called “a gardener of the human spirit.” His work has been published in several collections and has appeared in a number of magazines and journals.
Conversation and refreshments will follow the reading, along with the opportunity to purchase the authors’ books. The poetry evening is open to the public. A $5 donation per person will support the work of the Zohrab Center. Students with ID will be admitted free of charge.
