Letters to the Editor

A memorable evening

I would like to thank Roger Page, the Mercer Island community, my family and friends for a memorable evening at Island Books.

On Friday, July 16, Roger provided me with the opportunity and hospitality to talk about my recently published book, “Between the Two Rivers: A Story of the Armenian Genocide.”

The stacks at the bookstore were rolled away to create a spacious area. Sixty supporters trekked to Island Books from as far away as Hood Canal, Bainbridge Island and Mt. Vernon. It felt wonderful to be among such a warm and receptive group. My deepest gratitude to all.

Island Books deserves a special award for its first-class treatment of local authors. Roger, a thousand thank you’s!
