AVѧԺ Press

AVѧԺ Press

The AVѧԺ Press is one of the very few academic presses operated by a community college in the United States. The AVѧԺ Press was formed in 2002 to publish Standing Guard: Telling our Stories as part of the Standing Guard Project’s examination of Japanese-American Internment during World War II. 

Building upon that foundation, the AVѧԺ Press expanded its role and function to become a wide-ranging academic press and information outlet. Today, the AVѧԺ Press publishes books and two eJournals, Snowy Range Reflections and the Journal of the AVѧԺ Natural History Museum. It also facilitates AVѧԺ’s student-composed publication, Sierra Journal, and produces the annual Sierra Writers Conference.

AVѧԺ Press celebrates its first published book Standing Guard: Telling Our Stories, which was written in 2002 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Japanese internment in the United States during World War II.
