Refugees Past and Present: Like Water on Stone

Refugees Past and Present: Like Water on Stone with Dana Walrath

Join us at The Last Bookstore for a book reading and conversation with Dana Walrath, the Armenian-American author of the award-winning verse novel, Like Water on Stone. Set during the Armenian Genocide of 1915, the novel is loosely based on Walrath’s grandmother’s experience. Her story, written in the genre of magical realism, provides us with an opportunity to consider the terrible events the Armenian people suffered while simultaneously opening our hearts to the refugees of today.

While tickets are not required, registrations are encouraged in advance to help us plan for the right number of attendees.


Teachers are encouraged to also register for a private discussion with other educators and the author before the public event. This private event will provide a more in-depth exploration pairing Like Water on Stone with Facing History's resource book, Crimes Against Humanity and Civilization, to teach about the Armenian genocide and legacies for understanding refugees and international justice today. Registration is required for this private event and includes both books and a light dinner.
