THE COAUTHORS OF THE BOOK “LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS” ARE YSU STUDENTS
On June 28, the RA Diaspora Ministry hosted the presentation of a book, authored by the writer of Armenian origin from Lebanon, photographer Gabriel Panosyan.

Next to the photos the poems and stories of students of the Faculty of Law Mary Badalyan and the Faculty of International Relations Gayane Tadevosyan were included in the book. The idea to create the book was born when Gabriel Panosyan’s exhibition was held at YSU.

The RA Deputy Minister of Diaspora Serzh Srapionyan, YSU Vice-Rector on Students, Alumni and Public Relations Ruben Markosyan, tutors, students and others came to congratulate the publication of the book.


“The book tells us definitely about the unique style of Gabriel Panosyan. He has an individual approach to the work,” – said Serzh Srapionyan.


The co-authors of the book Mary Badalyan and Gayane Tadevosyan, inspired by photographs, wrote works on love, philosophical and psychological topics. Young authors are sure that this book will open new worlds for them and become a stimulus for creativity. Despite the fact that the students do not consider themselves writers and poets, they are sure their works will make readers think.


“The book has been made applying a new format. Besides the works of the experienced photographer there are works of talented students who are just beginning to write. Mary and Gayane are members of YSU Cultural Centre. Their ideas have been enriched and developed through the participation in the university cultural life,” - said YSU Vice-rector Ruben Markosyan.

Director of YSU Cultural Centre Karine Davtyan said: “I congratulate the authors of the book and I am sure this book will become popular. Each photo has its own story in this book.”

During the presentation excerpts from the works of students were read, and the members of YSU Cultural Centre made musical performances.
