The Intellectual Renaissance Foundation had a big celebration of W. Saroyan's 108th birthday
On August 31, 2016, the Intellectual Renaissance Foundation celebrated the 108th birthday of the great Armenian-American writer William Saroyan. The celebration had a true Saroyan spirit: the foundation organized a film screening, an online reading in a number of countries around the world, a painting competition, a quiz, an exhibition of Saroyan’s photographs, a concert with live music and a tasting of Saroyan’s favorite dishes.
The celebration was attended by Saroyan’s relatives and friends, as well as some high-ranking guests from Armenia and abroad. The event gave people an opportunity to discover Saroyan’s diverse and complicated personality from a completely different perspective.
