Lecture by Author Chris Bohjalian

Time: 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Location: UVM Davis Center, Livak Ballroom
Description: "The Story Behind the Sandcastle Girls: The Centennial of the Slaughter You Know Next to Nothing About”
Where do fact and fiction meet in a work of historical fiction? In Bohjalian's slide show, he will be sharing why he structured his novel of the Armenian Genocide, "The Sandcastle Girls," as a love story -- and where his personal family history fits in. Many of the images he will share come from his travels though the Middle East, Turkey, and Armenia.
Sponsored by the UVM Middle East Studies Program and the Miller Center for Holocaust Studies.
