OCT. 13, 2011 * MUSTIAN BOOK READING. Mark Mustian, the author of the award-winning novel The Gendarme, will read, sign books, and give a talk at the Armenian Library and Museum of America (ALMA) on 65 Main St., Watertown, Mass. The Gendarme portrays a 92-year old man who fought for the Ottomans in World War I and only late in life began to recall some of the things that happened at the beginning of the war—including the deportation of Armenians from Anatolia. It is the 2010 Gold Florida Book Award winner for general fiction and was a finalist for the Dayton International Literary Peace Prize. It has been published in eight languages. Reading begins at 8 p.m. For more information, visit www.markmustian.com.
