The President’s Office at Fresno State and the College of Arts and Humanities will celebrate the launch of Fresno State alumna Armen Bacon’s newest book with a public reception and signing at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9. The celebration of “My Name is Armen – Outside the Lines (Volume II)” will be held in the Table Mountain Rancheria Reading Room in the Henry Madden Library. The author says Volume II takes readers outside the margins of everyday life – always circling back, returning home – celebrating the resilience of the human spirit. The book is published by The Press at California State University, Fresno. Books will be available at the event for purchase. INFO: Lisa Boyles at or 559.278.5803. See original press release.
