Photographic Journey to Armenia and Karabakh


GLENDALE, CA Author-photographer Matthew Karanian will speak about his

East Harvard Street in Glendale. Admission is free; seating is limited.
The presentation is in English. Library visitors receive 3 hours FREE
parking across the street at The Market Place parking structure with

Arts & Culture Department.

Armenia and Karabakh: the Stone Garden Travel Guide is a unique book. It
is the largest and most colorful guidebook available for Armenia and
Karabakh. Its 320 pages are filled with 150 vibrant color images and 27
detailed color maps, including a map of historic Armenia that was
created shortly after the Armenian Genocide and which depicts Armenia as
it existed in 1915. The book also highlights nature and conservation,
and is considered a "green guide" to Armenia. Karanian dedicated the
book to his parents, Henry and Agnes Karanian, who are both the children
of Armenian Genocide survivors. The Los Angeles Times featured this book
in a major story on April 18, 2013 issue and describes it as "a fresh
view on ancient Armenia."
