“Reading served as a point of escape at the hardest times of my life, especially while living in Armenia during the post-soviet era shortly after independence. It was also a great way to receive an education and be able to travel to countries and times far away. Equally, I want other readers from all over the world to travel to my homeland, see the cultural wonders of my country, understand our great history, and meet Armenian people through books.” Arevik Ashkharoyan, Literary and Talent Agent
