Turkish Edition of Who Are the Armenians Published


bookarmenianLONDON — The Armenian Institute and the Gulbenkian Foundation announce the publication of Kim Bu Ermeniler?, the Turkish translation of the popular children’s book, Who Are the Armenians?

Translated by Lora Sari and published in partnership with Aras Publishers of Istanbul and the Armenian Institute, the project received generous funding from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.  Author Susan Pattie and co-authors Gagik Stepan-Sarkissian and Maral Kerovpyan worked with Lora Sari to adapt the text and images to Turkish language readers, adding a further eight pages to the already expanded second edition of the original English version.  With pages on language, history, games, food, customs, music and much else, the book includes activities and audio supplement now found on the website, replacing the earlier CD.

Though created for children, this book is a colorful and lively introduction to Armenians for people of all ages. Its Portuguese edition has been the best-selling book in the Gulbenkian Foundation’s bookstore for many months.
