ALMA’s “In  Conversation”  Series begins  on  Feb.  20  with  poet  and  singer/songwriter  Arto  Vaun,  and Prof.  Taline  Voskeritchian moderating  the  conversation.  The  program  will  center  on  the  question  of  literature’s  relevance  in  diasporic  culture  and  space.

This  ongoing  series  seeks  to  be  a  forum  where  intellectuals  and  artists,  along  with  the  audience,  engage  in  an  open  conversation.
