ABRIL BOOKSTORE dedicates July to children and youth by presenting three Sunday evenings celebrating Armenian authors who write in Armenian or in English. The first of these events will take place on Sunday, July 12, 2015 at 4:00pm at Abril Bookstore - 415 E. Broadway, Glendale, CA. Admission is free.

The event will begin with ALINE BEZDIKIAN-SHIRAJIAN, who will present her newly released children's book in Armenian, Lorigin yev Naregin Anmoruke (Lory and Nareg's Forget-Me-Not). At 5:00pm, author and artist ROSEMARY HARTOUNIAN COHEN will present her children's fairy tale, Anoush: The Daugher of King Shen: The evening will end with an art workshop, "Learn How to Paint on Silk Circles" for children ages 3 to 99.

ALINE BEZDIKIAN-SHIRAJIAN was born in Lebanon and currently lives in Glendale, California. She is a teacher and author of various children's books and songs. She participates in theatrical and cultural activities and has been a television host. The main heroes of her books are based on her two children, Lory and Nareg.

Lory and Nareg's Forget-Me-Not (Lorigin yev Naregin Anmoruke) introduces the child reader to the Armenian Genocide of 1915. When they find a forget-me-not in their garden, their mother says, "100 years have passed since the days when your grandmothers and grandfathers and many Armenians lived terribly sad days." Honoring the significance of the Forget-Me-Not, brother and sister promise to never forget their Armenian identity and to demand justice for their homeland.

ROSEMARY HARTOUNIAN COHEN is a sociologist who earned her PhD at the Sorbonne in Paris . She is an accomplished and award-winning artist in various media — her specialty being silk painting — as well as a publisher, award-winning author, and journalist.

In ANOUSH: THE DAUGHTER OF KING SHEN, the kindness of the king is repaid with treachery and a falsely accused Anoush is banished to the wilderness with her children. After many hardships, and through magical intervention, they are reunited, and an evil wrong is righted. This fable is for adults as well as children, for it speaks to the universal desire for fairness, justice and a happy ending.

The evening will end with an free art workshop, "Learn How to Paint on Silk Circles" for children ages 3 to 99 lead by Rosemary Hartounian Cohen. Materials will by available for an additional charge. Get ready to be surprised!
