The St. Thomas Cultural Committee hosted an outstanding evening with honored guest, author, professor, and recent Pulitzer Prize winner Peter Balakian on Saturday, April 30. Saddler Hall was full of excitement and people who were eager to hear and meet Dr. Balakian in his first appearance in the Armenian community since winning the coveted Pulitzer Prize in Poetry just weeks ago. “It was an intimate, informative and inspiring night. I loved how Mr. Balakian brought a nearly-forgotten masterpiece back to life. Also, it was a treat to hear him read one of the poems from his Pulitzer-Prize winning collection. Thanks for the church for hosting him and to Mr. Balakian (who graciously signed books for me and many others!)”
Due to a scheduling conflict resulting from his recent Pulitzer Prize, Peter Balakian has asked us to reschedule his appearance at St. Thomas to Saturday, April 30, 2016, 7:30pm. We are excited to have his first visit in the Armenian Community since his win of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry! Please join us for this very special evening – reception and book-signing.
