GILES MILTON
talk & booksigning for "Paradise Lost: Smyrna, 1922"
Wednesday, October 1 at 7:30 pm

Following WWI, Smyrna was a prosperous, cosmopolitan port on Turkey's Aegean coast where Greeks, Turks, Armenians, Jews and other nationalities lived in harmony. Then, the unthinkable happened. "Paradise Lost: Smyrna, 1922" is historian Giles Milton’s searingly vivid account of the city’s destruction ­ a nearly forgotten war in which a great modern city burned for four days, 100,000 people were killed, and millions more left homeless.

Giles Milton is a journalist, historian and best-selling author of five previous works of nonfiction including "White Gold," "The Riddle and the Knight," "Big Chief Elizabeth," and "Nathaniel’s Nutmeg." He lives in London.

This Booksmith sponsored event will take place at The Booksmith (1644 Haight Street in San Francisco).
