Event Description: A journey in time … a previous refugee crisis in the Mediterranean … this graphic novel dramatically tells the story of Greeks and Turks living as neighbors in the town of Aivali and other places along the Aegean Sea during the late Ottoman Empire; their subsequent expulsion from their ancestral homelands during a population exchange of Greeks and Turks in 1922, known to Greeks as "The Catastrophe" or the “Asia Minor Disaster”; and their subsequent lives as refugees. “Following in the footsteps of Art Spiegelman, Marjane Satrapi, Joe Sacco, or Jacques Tardi, Soloup, against the background of blood-stained chapters of History, focuses on human tragedy.” Kathimerini (Greece) Co-Hosts: Columbia University Program in Hellenic Studies, The Greek-American Writers’ Association, and Somerset Hall Press Panelists: Political cartoonist and author Soloup from Athens, Greece; Translator Dr. Tom Papademetriou, Stockton University; Dr. Nikolas Kakkoufa, Columbia University; and Penelope Karageorge, Greek-American Writers’ Association
