The Western Prelacy Public Relations Committee–under the auspices of His Eminence Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian–Prelate–has organized a book presentation event to be held at 6:00 PM on Sunday–April 30–at the Armenak Der Bedrossian Hall of St. Mary’s Church in Glendale. The book–"From the Book of One Thousand Tales: Stories of Armenia and its People–1892-1922," was a lost man’script of Diana Apcar–Ambassador of the Republic of Armenia to Japan during the first Armenian Republic (1918-1920).
Besides her diplomatic career–Diana Apcar was a renowned writer and author of several books. In the 1920’s–the building she lived in collapsed in an earthquake and the man’script for the aforementioned book was lost in the rubble. Many years later–the man’script was found and published by her granddaughter Lucille Apcar.
The Western Prelacy Public Relations Committee has invited Lucille Apcar to Los Angeles to present her grandmother’s recovered man’script and to tell the public more about her grandmother’s role in and service to the Armenian community from the far away land of Japan.
Following the official program there will be a reception and book signing.
