Arsineh Khachikian will be in Dubai and attend book signing event of her newly published work "My Nation".

The event is organized by Virgin Megastore and will take place in the books area of "Virgin Megastore", in Deira City Center (Dubai), at 08:00pm, 28 October 2008.

On this occasion Arsineh says: "I'm honored to be sharing my book with the UAE Armenian community where I've met so many devoted people to our culture and country. This book reflects on our successes as Armenians with the goal of defining our future. The UAE is in a very unique position to play a role in Armenia's future with it's close proximity to the homeland as well as their flourishing community. I hope that this presentation sheds some light on our strengths and needs in a way that unites us world wide in a mission to define our future as a prosperous nation."

"A lifetime spent searching for my own identity has led me to the discovery of history in the making. Underneath each rock I turned lay more rocks, revealing the story of a people undefined in a modern age: Armenians. This book will explore the depths of a people who challenge assimilation, defy expectations of defeat, and triumph in the face of their own doubt. Itís the story of my life and my nation through the lens of my camera, my eyes."

Hi Arsini,

Yes you can purchase the book at Virgin Megastore Deira City Center. The retail price would be AED185. By next week books will be spread to the rest of the stores in U.A.E.
