Check out Isabel-Rose Kulski’s “The Saints of Zara” at the L.A. Times Festival of Books 2020.

What’s there for history buffs to learn (more) about the Armenians other than the 1915 genocide? The history of the Armenian pioneers in the fledgling Mormon state of Utah, as told through the life of one family in the family memoir by Isabel-Rose Kulski titled “The Saints of Zara: An Intimate Memoir” (Archway; 2018).
For history buffs, as well as Armenian Americans, make sure to visit the exhibit of the book at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books 2020 on April 11 – 12, 2020 at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA.
The L.A. Times Festival of Books stands out as the largest book festival in the U.S, attracting approximately 150,000 attendees a year. The free public festival features not only books but also author panels, book signing sessions, storytelling, musical performances, cooking demonstrations, and many more. Attendees will find thousands of books on display, as well as new and original works of art and photography on display.
Kulski’s “The Saints of Zara” will be exhibited by ReadersMagnet at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books 2020.
The family memoir revolves around the themes of family, faith, and immigration. The title of the book pays homage to the author’s family history, which is two-fold. One, Kulski’s father, Nishan, hailed from Zara, “a town on the old Roman Road going east from what today is Ankara, Turkey.” Two, the book tells the story of Nishan and a small group of Armenian converts who left Zara in 1902 and settled in Murray, Utah. “Saints” refers to Latter-day Saints (Mormons).
The journey of Nishan and his fellow Armenian Mormons somewhat mirrors that of Brigham Young and the pioneers who arrived in the Salt Lake Valley (modern-day Utah) in 1947. History buffs well steeped in the history of the Mormon Pioneers will not fail to see the parallels between the two journeys.
By publishing “The Saints of Zara”, the author proves in herself a popular quote by Karekin I, the head of the Armenian Apostolic Church, “I was not born in Armenia, but Armenia was born in me!” Indeed, by sharing her family’s history, Armenia was born in her.
