PROHIBITION PITTSBURGH: MURDER AND MAYHEM IN THE STEEL CITY
7:00 PM

Presented by author Richard Gazarik

Prohibition in Pittsburgh brought crime and corruption and introduced organized crime to the region. Crusading journalist Walter Ligget said Pittsburgh was so corrupt that he dubbed the city the "Metropolis of Corruption." There was so much illicit liquor made it in Pittsburgh that it was "wet enough for rubber boots" and the Downtown was known as the "great wet way." Prohibition existed only on paper because an unholy alliance existed between bootleggers, police and politicians. 

Perhaps the era can best be summed up this way:

Prohibition is an awful flop,
We like it
It can't stop what its meant to stop
We like it
It's left a trail of graft and slime,
It's filled our land with vice and crime,
It don't prohibit worth a dime,
Nevertheless, we're for it.

The book Prohibition Pittsburgh is available at Barnes and Noble and Giant Eagle in addition to Amazon.

GOD IS GREAT BUT HIS PEOPLE SUCK. AGREE OR DISAGREE? ALL OPINIONS WELCOME
11:00 AM

Father of 5, Author of “God is Great but His People Suck,” Speaker, Entrepreneur, Numismatist, Cartoonist, Bethel Park Resident

The event will be an explanation of the book title, its origins, and the humorously uplifting life stories that it contains. Come with your thinking caps on because the book title, “God is Great but His People Suck,” cuts to the core and is not for the faint of heart or mind. The subtitle, “A Polemical Look at Life With a Propitious Twist; Written by a Pleb,” hints at the directional tone of the book. Brad Shiff takes aim at everyone’s comfort zone and asks people to think before reacting while exploring life’s most challenging questions. It has been over fifty plus years in the making and written for 7.442 billion people.  Prior to the event you can purchase the book from Amazon ($14.98) and interact with the author, or you can buy one at the event and have the author sign it.

SPECIAL NEEDS TRUST PLANNING
7:00 PM

Presented by David Frick, CPA, Financial Professional, AXA Advisors, LLC

Often the term “Special Needs Trust” is mentioned to individuals or caretakers of persons with disabilities, which does nothing but bring up questions such as: Who actually needs a Special Needs Trust?, What is its purpose?, How do they work?, Are they expensive?, When should one be put into place?,  How is one setup? During this seminar, we will seek to provide some general answers to these questions and others.  We will also talk about next steps to resolve all of your questions surrounding Special Needs Trusts.  If you are an individual or caretaker of a person with disabilities and do not have a Special Needs Trust or forgot why you have one, this is a discussion for you!  In conjunction with this topic, we will discuss how a PA ABLE account can fit into the financial plan for a special needs individual.

MOTHERLANDS: BOOK TALK
7:00 PM

Presented by author Natasha Garrett

In this collection of personal essays, Natasha Garrett explores various facets of the modern migration experience. Weaving academic and literary sources, as well as personal and professional experiences, Garrett uses transnationalism as a springboard for discussing a range of topics such as home, motherhood, identity, bilingualism, family, education and travel.  The essays in Motherlands offer a well-researched, witty and heartfelt look into migration both as a global phenomenon and as a deeply intimate experience.

Natasha Garrett was born and raised in Macedonia and lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she serves as a Director of International Student Services at La Roche College. Her poetry, personal essays and translations have appeared in Transnational Literature, Gravel, Allegro Poetry Magazine, Arts and Letters, and other publications.  She is the editor of “Macedonia 2013: 100 Years After the Treaty of Bucharest.” She obtained her PhD in Education at the University of Pittsburgh, and her Master’s in English Literature from Duquesne University.
