August 31 marks the 113th birthday of the Pulitzer Prize and Oscar-winning Armenian-American writer William Saroyan.
His Armenian identity was a paramount force in the writer’s life, his stories, and pages filled with characters, dialogues, and themes that reflected his cultural values, mores, and history.
On this day, three years ago, the first and the only museum dedicated to William Saroyan opened its doors for its honorable visitors, and ever since the museum has been welcoming and surprising guests from all over the world with its innovative technologies. Unique and innovative exhibits at the Museum, along with the William Saroyan hologram have already attracted many visitors from his hometown of Fresno and around the globe. The Museum has become one of the most important cultural assets of Fresno.
After the Covid-19 pandemic, The William Saroyan House Museum is excited to reopen its doors to the public and welcome back to all Saroyan lovers.\
It should be noted that the creation of the museum was fully carried out by the Renaissance Cultural and Intellectual Foundation operating in Armenia, and this year, like in the previous years, the Saroyan House project’s team celebrates Saroyan’s anniversary.
The museum is located at 2729 W Griffith Way in Fresno, and more information is available of the museum’s website.
