misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Dismantling Structural Racism and Promoting Racial Equity    
    Contact: Reference Desk    412-372-0500 X 4   
   

Please join University of Pittsburgh Postdoctoral Fellow Wesley Hiers for a discussion of structural racism and how to dismantle it. Structural racism is a system in which public policies, institutional practices, social norms and cultural representations work together to perpetuate racial inequity. In a racially equitable society, the distribution of societal benefits and burdens would not be skewed by race. Racial equity holds society to a higher standard by demanding that we pay attention not just to individual acts of discrimination but to overall social outcomes.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Pittsburgh Author Mike Smith: Miss Mezzanine    
    Contact: Reference Desk   412-372-0500 X 4   
   

Please join Pittsburgh author Mike Smith for a discussion of his debut novel, Miss Mezzanine. The coming of age story centers on soon-to-be college graduate Jass Dietrich, who has suddenly realized that the road waiting for him upon graduation may not be the one he wants to follow. Jass has everything a college senior could dream of: solid grades, a supportive girlfriend, and cushy job waiting for him the moment he graduates. But then, on his last spring break trip, he meets and falls for Annabelle, the mysterious free spirit who challenges him to reconsider his plans. When Jass returns to campus, he finds himself finally facing the questions he had avoided for so long: Is it too late to change career paths? Are he and his girlfriend truly meant to be together? And will he ever see Annabelle -- the girl who left an imprint on his heart -- again?

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Significant Houses of Monroeville    
    Contact: Reference Desk   412-372-0500 X 4   
   
Cosponsored by Monroeville Historical Society
 
Monroeville began in the early 1800s as a small village in the hills just to the east of Pittsburgh. Today it is a major municipality with some 30,000 residents. Monroeville's houses reflect the social history of the community. As older houses are lost to make way for new construction, it is useful to pause from time to time and review what we have.
 
Please join Louis Chandler of the Monroeville Historical Society for a review of Monroeville's "significant houses" -- houses selected because of their historical value, because they are unique, or because they provide examples of various architectural styles common to our region.
 
Louis Chandler is a retired University of Pittsburgh professor who, as a member of the Monroeville Historical Society, has been responsible for collecting and archiving some nine hundred photos donated for the Historical Society website at http://monroevillehistorical.org/. He has written extensively on local history, including the very popular paperback book Monroeville, Pennsylvania: A Pictorial History. His most recent hardcover book, A History of Patton Township (Monroeville and Pitcairn) Pennsylvania, is a comprehensive history of the community now available to the public, with all proceeds going to the Historical Society.
