Meet The Beirut Book People | Eileen Khatchadourian

Role: Armenian editor

I met Eileen last June in Beirut (thanks to Valérie Nehmé by the way), after posting on Facebook asking for someone able to write/edit/create in Armenian. Eileen happens to be a talented Armenian singer and composer. So I asked for her help to compose… sentences in Armenian. We met a couple of times, she told me stories about her people and one day, she came to my place with some books. Books from Armenians authors I’ve never heard about. Of course. We picked some sentences together, she gave her father some phone calls just to be sure of some words’ meaning. Without her help, "The Beirut Book" would not have been complete. That’s a fact.
