Algonquin Books is thrilled by the reception for this debut novel, and especially at how an Armenian Genocide novel will be front and center in every bookstore in the county. Ohanesian will be launching her national book tour on April 7 at p. The general public is welcome to attend. Ohanesian will continue on to 15 additional stops around the country as part of her national book tour. A descendant of genocide survivors, Ohanesian spent six years researching the novel, and even traveled to the region of the Ottoman Empire, known as Sepastia to Armenians and Sivas to Turks, where the story takes place.
