Antonia Arslan, Armenian-Italian award-winning novelist, will visit the University of Rhode Island in Kingston on Monday, October 20, to present Skylark Farm, the English translation of her novel La masseria delle allodole (2004), based on the true story of her family's experiences in the 1915 Armenian genocide. Kirkus Reviews called the book "An Armenian Schindler's List."

The following night, Tuesday, October 21 at 8 p.m., the University will screen The Lark Farm, the film adaptation of Arslan's book. Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, considered two of the most important Italian directors of the 20th/21st centuries, directed the film, which has not yet been released in the U.S. Arslan will be available for a question and answer session after the screening.
