Mark Mustian Upcoming Book Reading in Naples

Mark Mustian, author of the award-winning novel The Gendarme, will read and sign books at the Armenian-American Cultural Society’s winter event scheduled for Tuesday, January 17, 2012 at Stonebridge Country Club, 2100 Winding Oaks Way, Naples, Florida 34109, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM.

Mustian is also scheduled to speak at the Sarasota Public Library on March 2, 2012 for an event entitled, A Way with Words: Connecting Writers and Readers.

The Gendarme, which portrays a 92-year old man who fought for the Ottomans in World War I and only late in life begins to recall some of the things that happened at the beginning of the war—including the deportation of Armenians from Anatolia in the 1915 Armenian Genocide—is the 2010 Gold Florida Book Award winner for general fiction, and has been published in nine languages.
