Other Los Angeles Literature Events 4//5/15-4/12/15

Writer at Skylight Books

Aline Ohanesian reads from her debut novel “Orhan’s Inheritance.” The novel is about “When Orhan’s brilliant and eccentric grandfather, who built a dynasty out of making kilim rugs, is found dead in a vat of dye, Orhan inherits the decades-old business. But his grandfather’s will raises more questions than it answers. Kemal has left the family estate to a stranger thousands of miles away, an aging woman in a retirement home in Los Angeles. Her existence and secrecy about her past only deepen the mystery of why Orhan’s grandfather would have left their home to this woman rather than to his own family.”
