“AGBU LEVON ZAVEN SURMELIAN PRINTING HOUSE” OPENED AT THE WRITERS UNION OF ARMENIA

 

For the first time the Writers’ Union of Armenia has its own printing house. Continuing its traditional support to various cultural programs, particularly its contribution to the development of Armenian literature and book publishing both in Armenia and Diaspora, Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) expands cooperation with the Writers’ Union of Armenia (WUA). During the years with the financial support of AGBU the Writers’ Union of Armenia has published works of Armenian writers and organized pan-Armenian conferences. With a new initiative to promote book publishing Armenian General Benevolent Union has sponsored the establishment of a printing house at the Writers’ Union of Armenia, which will carry the name of prominent Armenian-American writer Levon Zaven Surmelian. Funds have been provided by the “AGBU Levon Zaven Surmelian Fund” for the purchase of the necessary printing equipment. Months ago the same fund had also sponsored the publication of Levon Zaven Surmelian’s “Techniques of Prose: Measure and Madness” book in Eastern Armenian as part of the “History of Literature: XX Century” series. The official opening ceremony of the “AGBU Levon Zaven Surmelian Printing House” took place at the Writers’ Union of Armenia on November 3 with the participation of AGBU President Berge Setrakian and Chairman of the WUA Levon Ananian. “Having their own printing house has been the dream of our writers for decades. Even in the Soviet times we could not realize this dream. And today, despite all the hardships, despite the global economic crisis, Armenian General Benevolent Union extended a helping hand and so we have our modern printing house. Surmelian is one of our prominent writers and his name will be on every book published here”, said Levon Ananian in his speech. “Levon Zaven Surmelian was a great writer and a great philanthropist. This is our tribute of respect to keep his memory alive in his homeland”, said AGBU President Berge Setrakian emphasizing the efforts of Torgom Postajian, Surmelian’s executor of will, towards the foundation of this printing house. “The most important is that in this printing house we will be printing literate books, books that will educate, without spoiling our mother language,”, said Vahagn Mughnetsian, Director of the printing house.
