We welcomed author Antonia Arslan, and Professor Siobhan Nash-Marshall who presented and discussed Ms. Arslan’s newly published novella, Silent Angel.
Arslan, a diminutive, charming and humble personality who is also the author of the best-selling The Skylark Farm and Road to Smyrna, commented, “I wrote this small book and it was also placed in Yerevan’s great Matenadaran Library of ancient manuscripts with this huge treasure of the St. Arakelots Monastery. It is symbolic of the Armenian civilization.”
The novel was translated from Italian to English by Professor Siobhan Nash-Marshall, Chairperson of the Mary T. Clark Chair of Christian Philosophy at Manhattanville College. She related that this book is a testament “on how a culture was saved. This is what makes Armenia rich — the transmission of culture and heritage to the world.”
