Event Details

"They are my people and this is my town and it does my heart good just to be here." - Art Rooney Sr. 

The library is proud to host local author Ed Simon for a talk about his new book, The Soul of Pittsburgh: Essays on Life, Community, and History

What does it mean to be from Pittsburgh? In this new collection of writings, Simon explores the nature of the Yinzer and how the Steel City shapes anyone who is fortunate to call it home.
