LITERARY SOIREE AT THE UNION OF CALIFORNIA'S ARMENIAN WRITERS

On July 7, the Armenian Writers' Union of California held its regular
monthly open-door meeting at the public library of Glendale, pulling
in numerous writers and literature aficionados. The writers were free
to present their works from the stage. It was nice to see young
authors to join the ranks of renowned writers. Among the authors to
recite their works were Esther Davtian, Armen Poghosian, Hayrik
Dodorian, Sona Van, Martik Davtian (from Tehran), Vartan Murdaghanian,
Tevan Shahbazian, Raffi Davtian, Mane Hayryan, Manya Aslanian, Albert
Grqiasharian, Kima Kirakosian, Gayane Ghazarian and Sonya Mkrian.
Prose writers and poets alike gave great pleasure to listeners with
the fiction in Armenian language. Many writers failed to recite
because of time pressure.
