Mon, 10 aug, 5pm: The Missing Pages: The Modern Life of a Medieval Manuscript, from Genocide to Justice

Join us for a live online presentation on Monday, August 10, 2020: The Missing Pages: The Modern Life of a Medieval Manuscript from Genocide to Justice

5:00-6:15 PM via Zoom Webinar, see registration link below.

A live online presentation by Heghnar Watenpaugh, Ph.D., author and professor of art history at the University of California, Davis.

The Missing Pages is the biography of a manuscript that is at once art, sacred object, and cultural heritage. Its tale mirrors the story of its scattered community as Armenians have struggled to redefine themselves after genocide and in the absence of a homeland.

Heghnar Zeitlian Watenpaugh follows in the manuscript’s footsteps through seven centuries, from medieval Armenia to the killing fields of 1915 Anatolia, the refugee camps of Aleppo, Ellis Island, and Soviet Armenia, and ultimately to a Los Angeles courtroom. Reconstructing the path of the pages, Watenpaugh uncovers the rich tapestry of an extraordinary artwork and the people touched by it. At once a story of genocide and survival, of unimaginable loss and resilience, The Missing Pages captures the human costs of war and persuasively makes the case for a human right to art.

New book for children: Parev, Yerevan: An Armenian Children’s Book

Parev, Yerevan is a fun, engaging, and educational board book in Armenian about Yerevan. Beautifully illustrated, it takes the reader through well-known sites in Yerevan and showcases Armenian culture and history in a simple and captivating manner. It exposes children to both the Armenian language and the spirit of Armenia. This is a great introduction to Yerevan for young children!

My goal is to expose children to the Armenian language and help foster a connection to Armenia at a young age. Since there are very few board books in Armenia, this book is an ideal engagement tool for young children.

Please visit my page at to learn more about my campaign and pre-order your copy. Thank you!
