The city of Smyrna was a multicultural Ottoman Empire metropolis. To the Turkish cavalry who arrived in September 1922, most of the inhabitants were infidels who deserved to die in a raping-looting-killing rampage; as many as 100,000 were slain in one week, and the city burned for days. Giles Milton discusses his book Paradise Lost: Smyrna 1922 at RakestrawBooks (409 Railroad Ave., Danville) on Sept. 30. 7 p.m.
