A book talk with Arda Darakjian Clark, editor of ‘Bloodied, But Unbowed: A Memoir of the Ashur & Arshaluys Yousuf Family‘, will take place on April 14, 5:30 pm at 5901 Cahuenga Blvd, North Hollywood, CA.
Published by Nineveh Press, the recently released memoir has already earned critical acclaim throughout.
Please join us for a highly informative book talk with the granddaughter of the memoir’s author and the memoir’s editor, Arda Darakjian Clark.
“In this memoir, author Alice Nazarian tells the story of her parents and family in the shadow of the Armenian/Assyrian Genocide. Her father, Ashur Yousuf, a prominent Assyrian intellectual and professor at Euphrates College in Kharpert, Turkey, became a victim of the Genocide in 1915. Her mother, Arshaluys Yousuf, heroically struggled on after her husband’s death, raising their six children while helping educate countless young children in orphanages and schools in the Middle East.
The memoir comprises a narrative of the turbulent life of Arshaluys and a section devoted to writings by and about Ashur Yousuf. This English translation, while faithful to the original Armenian, contains some new material and an updated genealogy of the descendants of Ashur and Arshaluys Yousuf.”
