Note: Braided with lyrics from Joni Mitchell’s “Wish I Had a River.”
Armen Bacon’s debut memoir, Griefland – An Intimate Portrait of Love, Loss and Unlikely Friendship, tells the story of two women whose words and astonishing friendship helped them survive the ultimate loss. Her second and third books, My Name is Armen – a life in column inches and My Name is Armen – outside the lines, have been praised as “pulling us all a little closer to each other.” A featured columnist for The Fresno Bee, her work has appeared in Entropy, Pacific Journal, HyeBred Magazine and Brevity Blog. Hellbent on finishing book four, Daring to Breathe in 2020, she credits CSU Summer Arts for igniting her writing passion and fueling her insatiable appetite for storytelling.
