At The Heinz History Center: A Look at Immigrants, Visionaries, and our Personal Histories – August 23rd

From the Adena’s soulful burial mounds to historically pivotal Logstown, to the Harmonist’s world-shaking village of Economy and the company that fabricated the Empire State Building, history and daily life in Ambridge and Pittsburgh will take center stage at The Heinz History Center on Wednesday, August 23rd at 7pm.

Please join me for a reading and discussion of more than 300 years that shaped western Pennsylvania — the movement of natives, waves of immigration, bold visionaries, and the vivid memories that still define our lives. In what I intend to be a light-hearted event, we will talk about regional history and our personal histories — our neighborhoods, schools, food traditions, churches, and of course, bars.

New to the ‘Burgh? Consider what a reviewer of Rust Belt Boy and fellow emigre, Jennifer Graham wrote of the book: “Should be required reading for every new Pittsburgh resident.”

The Senator John Heinz History Center is one of my favorite, most fun and informative institutions in Pittsburgh. I hope you will come. I look forward to seeing you. And admission to the event is free. More details HERE.

  1. Wonderful book. Beaver County resident living near Philly.

    If I had the opportunity to come, I would in a heart beat. This book is a perfect gift for family and friends that have moved away. Felt like Paul was talking to me! Seize the moment, your heart will thank you.
    PS…Ms Graham is correct…required reading for sure!
