Mayda Book Launch Party

cover of mayda book

Join us as we celebrate the publication of a new translation of Srpuhi Dussap’s novel, Mayda. As the first feminist novel written in Armenian, Mayda caused quite a stir on its publication in the 19th century.  Dussap’s story of a widow who finds work and love while losing everything in the process now finds a new audience among those interested in early feminism, Ottoman history, women’s rights, and Armenian studies.

The book’s translator, Nareg Seferian, and its editors—Lisa Gulesserian, Barbara Merguerian, Joy Renjilian-Burgy, Judith A. Saryan, and Danila Jebejian Terpanjian—along with its graphic designer, Taline Boghosian, will be in attendance.
