The Sandcastle Girls

I just finished reading Chris Bohjalian's novel on the Armenian Genocide; The Sandcastle Girls. Wow, this man is a great writer! And he did his homework too - onsite! My favorite character was "Armen" and the way he presented him in the beginning of the book. Who says the pencil is not mightier than the sword (-' (read the book!)

On April 24th (Armenian Martyr's Day) at St. John's Armenian Apostolic Church in Southfield Michigan, I was lucky enough to sit at the same table as the author. His speech and presentation on his novel and the Armenian Genocide were well done. I wish or hope someone has recorded this and with the author's permission post for the public.

I highly recommend this book to Armenians and non-Armenians alike. it takes you down a path that is full of emotions and historic education.

Thank you, Chris!
