Graduate of American University of Beirut, Naomi Topalian (RN ’52) was the author featured on a program organized by the Armenian International Women's Association, New England affiliate, on November 5 in Arlington, Massachusetts. She read passages from her latest book, entitled Breaking the Rock of Tradition—an autobiography that records her life as the child of parents who escaped the Armenian Genocide in Turkey and describes growing up in an Armenian refugee camp in Beirut and later in the Nor Marash Bourj Hammoud neighborhood. It is a straightforward, engrossing account of her life and spirit. Naomi’s books can be ordered by emailing her at ngtopalian @ aol.com.
