The Five Wishes Living Will is a new resource developed by the Aging with Dignity organization. This easily completed document lets your family and doctors know who you want to make health care decisions for you when you can’t make them, the kind of medical treatment you want or don’t want near end of life, how comfortable you want to be near end of life, how you want people to treat you near end of life, and what you want your loved ones to know near end of life. The will is a legal document recognized in Pennsylvania and is the only advance directive / living will that speaks to all of a person’s concerns, not just the medical and legal ones. Join us to learn more about the benefits of using the Five Wishes Living Will. Copies of the form will be available to program participants after the program for $1.00.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM THE DEMON OF BROWNSVILLE ROAD BOOK TALK Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Presented by: Bob Cranmer, former Allegheny County commissioner. A book signing will follow the program.

October 1988: Bob Cranmer buys a house in the Pittsburgh suburb he grew up in. He has no idea that his dream home is about to become his worst nightmare.

The Cranmers seemed fated to own the house at 3406 Brownsville Road. As a young boy, Bob had been drawn to the property, and, just when the family decided to move back to Brentwood, it went up for sale. Without a second thought, they purchased the house that Bob had always dreamed of owning. But soon, the family began experiencing strange phenomena-objects moving on their own, ghostly footsteps, unsettling moaning sounds-that gradually increased in violence, escalating to physical assaults and, most disturbingly, bleeding walls... Now, Bob Cranmer recounts the harrowing true story of the evil presence that tormented his family and the epic spiritual war he fought to save everything he held dear.

Bob Cranmer was born in Pittsburgh, graduating from Brentwood High School in 1974 and Duquesne University in 1978. He then entered the US Army as a second lieutenant and served with the 101st Airborne Division and in Washington, D.C. In 1986, Bob went to work for AT&T and returned to Pittsburgh. Entering politics, he was elected Allegheny County Commissioner in 1995, serving as chairman. He was instrumental in a major development plan for Pittsburgh involving the construction of two sports stadiums and a new convention center. Bob currently runs a firm providing government relations.

Join us as Marian Szczepanski discusses her debut novel Playing St. Barbara. Inspired by her family background and her work at a Houston domestic violence hotline, her novel focuses on how the secrets, struggles and self-redemption of a Depression-era coal miner’s wife and three daughters play out against a turbulent historical backdrop of Ku Klux Klan intimidation and the 1933 Pennsylvania Mine War. Their intertwined lives eerily mirror the 7th century legend of St. Barbara, patroness of miners, and each woman writes her own courageous ending to St. Barbara’s story. Copies of her book will be available for purchase and signing after the program.

Ms. Szczepanski was raised in Greensburg and is the granddaughter of immigrant coal miners. She has an MFA in fiction from the Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College and a BA in American Studies from the University of Notre Dame. Her short fiction garnered the de Maine Award for an Emerging Writer from Clackamas Literary Review. She has been recognized by the Houston Press Club for magazine feature writing, and the Houston Press named her to the 2014 list of “100 Houston Creatives.” Read more about her at www.marianszczepanski.com.

During his presentation, Shumway will focus on how the media offered rock stars the opportunity to thrive on many stages including recorded music, concert performance, dress, cover art, films, television, video, print and others. He also will show how changes in American Society elevated rock stars as political figures impacting our popular culture. The talk will be illustrated with photographs, video, and music

He has written several books including John Sales, for the Illinois Contemporary Film Director Series published in 2012.

misc_none Pittsburgh: Whiskey Rebellion, Prohibition, and the Restoration of a Pittsburgh Tradition Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Whiskey InsurrectionAmerican Whiskey was born in Pittsburgh and the city’s history – from frontier town to industrial center – was shaped by whiskey. At this program you will learn how Pittsburgh made America’s original drink and how Wigle Whiskey, the city’s first whiskey distillery since Prohibition, is bringing our heritage back home.

Meredith Grelli is co-owner and co-founder of Wigle Whiskey. When she’s not at the distillery, she teaches New Product Development in Chatham University’s Food Studies Program. Before Wigle, Grelli worked in brand management at the Heinz Company, went to business school at Carnegie Mellon University, cooking school at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, worked in Urban Redevelopment efforts and studied urban history at the University of Chicago.

Wigle Whiskey is named for a good-natured gentleman who was sentenced to hang for his unsinkable love of whiskey. In 1794, Phillip Wigle defended his right to distill in a tussle with a tax collector. He unwittingly helped spark the Whiskey Rebellion, which pitted Western Pennsylvania distillers against George Washington’s troops. Wigle Whiskey is working to restore a Pennsylvania tradition championed by these rebellious distillers. They make spirits much the same way Phillip Wigle and his friends did when Pittsburgh was the center of American Whiskey – with a copper pot and fresh local, organic ingredients.

Presented by: Betty Robison, MSN, RN-BC, Gerontology Educator at the Aging Institute

Six out of ten seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia exhibit wandering type behaviors. Unfortunately three out of ten will become lost when they wander away. This behavior can result in serious consequences because if the individual is not located within eight hours, they are at high risk for serious injury or death. This presentation will focus on recognizing and preventing wandering behaviors, maintaining a secure environment, search and rescue information along with location devices, and having an appropriate plan of action in place should it become necessary. A question and answer period will follow the presentation.

In recognition of the 151st anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, Lincoln’s most famous speech, Rea Andrew Redd presents a program at the library.

The Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the Civil War, the Union victory ended General Robert E. Lee’s second and most ambitious invasion of the North. Gettysburg was the Civil War’s bloodiest battle and was also the inspiration for President Abraham Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Address”. Of the 165,000 soldiers at the battle, 46,000 were killed, wounded, captured or missing which is 28 out of every 100 soldiers. Burying the dead, caring for the wounded and prisoners, and Lincoln’s cemetery dedication speech will be covered. Redd will also present on the Battle of Gettysburg’s emergency medical situation, the farms used as hospitals, and the creation of the national cemetery at Gettysburg. Canonsburg-native Jonathan Letterman, known as the pioneer of battlefield emergency medical care, will be discussed. Redd will also show and discuss an American Civil War surgeon’s equipment.

Rea Andrew Redd is a native of Washington County, Pennsylvania. He received a Master’s Degree in History at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and a Master’s Degree of Library Science from the University of Pittsburgh. Currently he is the Director of the Eberly Library, Waynesburg University, where he also serves as an Instructor of American History. Since 1993 Rea Andrew Redd has reenacted the American Civil War as a Federal Infantry, A Federal Medical Service Captain, and as President Lincoln.
