Mary Terzian, author and free lance writer, will speak at the Ararat-Eskijian Museum, 15105 Mission Hills Rd, Mission Hills CA 91343, on Sunday, September 13, 2009 at 4:00 p.m. Excerpts will be read from her book, “The Immigrants’ Daughter,” and references made to incidents that compel us to change our attitudes over time, in order to live in harmony with our new environment. Keeping one’s identity untainted during such adaptation, in a multicultural setting, is easier said than done. Finding the balance between personal values and social requirements is a challenge we all face when we are transplanted. The world will always evolve. Should we change ourselves to keep pace with such evolution, or resist the tide?
