Three authors known for their stand against intolerance will be guests of the Friends of the Glendale Public Library Wednesday, March 5, at 7 p.m. at the library’s central branch auditorium. The theme for the evening is “Three Faces of Tolerance.”.
Carolyn Howard-Johnson’s is the author of two award-winning, books. “This is the Place” and her new release “Harkening” explore the corrosive nature of subtle intolerance. Dr. Alice Ghiragossian is an internationally known poet who was nominated for the Nobel Prize. Of Armenian descent, she often writes of the Armenian Genocide. Stephen Veres’s memoir, “A Light in the Distance,” tells his story of survival and triumph at the beginning of WWII in Budapest, Hungary.
Chuck Wike, the library events coordinator is pleased that “these three exceptional local authors will discuss the intercultural challenges that face our community.” Howard-Johnson and Ghirasgossian are residents of Glendale and Veres lives in Burbank. The event is cosponsored by the Glendale Human Relations Coalition.
