Join Us April 8 for a Local Book & Author Fair

Mon., Apr. 3
Do you like to read books about Pittsburgh or by Pittsburgh-area authors? Ever wanted to hear an author describe their creative process? Have you wondered what it takes to get a book published? Do you yourself write and want to network with other local writers? If you answered "yes" to any these questions, then you're in luck!

My Year of Reading Memoir: Tangles by Sarah Leavitt

Thu., Mar. 23
I chose Tangles: A story about Alzheimer’s, My Mother, and Me by Sarah Leavitt. Tangles is 1) a graphic memoir, 2) was written by a woman, 3) was published in 2012 (just hitting the five year mark), and 4) has only 832 ratings on Goodreads. I feel really fortunate though that it fit my criteria, because Tangles turned out to be a profoundly affecting story of a daughter losing her mother and a mother losing herself.

Saying Goodbye: YA Books About Moving Away

I'm moving to Cleveland in three weeks. I'll be leaving behind my hometown of Pittsburgh, its familiar city streets, delicious restaurants, and most present in my thoughts, my dear friends and family. What better way to get through moving to a new town than books about people moving to a new town? Join these young adult characters as they navigate new schools, new social dynamics, and new ways of looking at the world and themselves.
