Tonight!

Tonight, Monday April 4, Burbank Public Library presents an author talk by Dana Walrath, author of the young adult novel Like Water on Stone. The talk will take place in the community room of the Buena Vista Branch, and will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Dr. Walrath will speak about her time in Armenia as a Fulbright Scholar, the inspiration for her book, and how writing it continues to impact her life.

Blending magical realism and lyrical free verse, the novel is an intense survival story of three siblings caught up in the horrific events of the Armenian genocide of 1915. Orphans Shahen, Sosi, and Mariam flee into the mountains, watched over by an eagle named Ardziv.

The book will be available for purchase and signing. Teens who attend for extra credit will receive a proof of attendance slip at the end of the program.

We hope to see you there!
