“With what one can only describe as an artistic skill, Garin Hovannisian interleaves the micro-story of his resilient family with the macro-narrative of the Armenian Genocide.”

Who She Was: My Search for My Mother’s Life
In this critically acclaimed investigative memoir, Garin tells a 100-year history of the Armenian people through the generations of his family: his great-grandfather Kaspar, who survived the Armenian Genocide of 1915; his grandfather Richard, who pioneered the field of Armenian Studies in the United States; and his father Raffi, who repatriated to a newly independent Armenia and served as its first foreign minister.
Garin has written for various global publications. These are a few of them.
