Somehow I missed the news that Virginia Tashjian died in March.
Her book, Juba This and Juba That, has been a library and storytelling standard for years.
She also compiled With a Deep Sea Smile and more recently published The Flower of Paradise and other Armenian Tales, and has a book to be released this month called Once There Was and Was Not.
She was quite a storyteller. I hope she is still telling tales somewhere.
