Armenian author Micheline Aharonian Marcom to speak at Fresno State Tuesday, Nov.27

Author Micheline Aharonian Marcom will speak about her new book, “Three Apples Fell From Heaven,” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27, in the Alice Peters Auditorium of California State University, Fresno’s University Business Center, 5245 N. Backer.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Parking is available in Lots A and J, near the University Business Center.

The novel, Marcom’s first, is about the disappearance of an Armenian village during 1915-1917, the years of the Ottoman Turkish government’s campaign of brutality that resulted in the deaths of more than a million Armenians.

The tales are seen through the eyes and told through the tongues of three different characters. Through their lives, the readers witness the vanishing of a people during the genocide.

Marcom, who was born in Saudi Arabia and raised in Los Angeles, based the tales on stories she heard from her grandmother, a survivor of the genocide.

Copies of “Three Apples Fell From Heaven” will be available for sale at the lecture, which is co-sponsored by the Armenian Students Organization and Armenian Studies Program at Fresno State.
