Middle-Eastern TV star hopes to promote #MeToo movement in Arabic countries
Timely, the personal story uncovers fame, betrayal, and passion under Middle East spotlight.
MASKS debut novel by Nataly Restokian
Tuesday, September 10 at 7pm
“A deftly written, inherently fascinating, iconoclastic novel of one woman’s emotional struggle to break through a patriarchal society’s compulsory norms for her gender and the difficulties of being true to her own personal and emotional aspirations.” James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review
After positive results from early promotion in the US and UK including various nominations, author Nataly Restokian is looking forward to the hometown launch of her first novel, Masks. Restokian, the granddaughter of Armenian genocide survivors, was born and raised in Beirut against the backdrop of civil war. She spent two decades as a celebrated television journalist, actor, and live talk show and radio host in Lebanese and Arabic societies, where she was one of the most recognizable women in the media. But at what cost? Against all odds, Restokian rose to the top before giving it all up and moving to Montreal for a chance at genuine happiness and personal truth.
Please join her for the launch of her first novel, Masks, on Tuesday, September 10, for readings, a Q&A and refreshments.
