Deep Dish with Bob Hartley: A Book Talk and Taste
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us for a pairing of fine prose and food!  We welcome local author Bob Hartley to dish about his new crime thrillerNorth and Central.  Set in the Windy City of the 1970s, a time of blizzards and disco and John Wayne Gacy, the novel spins a yarn of corrupt cops, street toughs, and a bartender on his last legs who may become a criminal to make ends meet.  

 As a way to evoke the mood of the book, we’ll have a Chicago-style pizza party with deep dish slices for everyone! 

 Are you tough enough to survive the grit and grime of an epic Chicago winter?  Find out and fill up! 

 Refreshments will be provided and copies of North and Central will be available for purchase following the talk.

Beauty, Hope, and Intrigue: The 1893 Chicago World's Fair!
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

What do Ragtime, the Ferris wheel and George Westinghouse have in common? They all helped to make the nation come alive during the grandest fair in the world.

Just in time for its 125th anniversary, the library and The Frick Pittsburgh bring you a dynamic picture presentation of this “wonder of wonders”. We’ll look back at the six-month event that defined the Gilded Age as well as set the stage for a new century—the World’s Columbian Exposition, held in Chicago in 1893.

Learn what made the fair so significant and how it forever altered the nation. Along the way, discover its many surprising ties to Pittsburgh!

Refreshments will be served.

The Butterfly Project with the Holocaust Center
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

The Butterfly Project with the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh


The Butterfly Project is a call to action through education, the arts and memorial making. It uses the lessons of the Holocaust to educate about the dangers of hatred and bigotry and cultivates empathy and social responsibility. Participants paint ceramic butterflies that are permanently displayed as symbols of resilience and hope, with the goal of creating 1.5 million butterflies around the world—one for each child who perished in the Holocaust, and honoring the survivors. Registration is required.
