Pittsburgh Literary Round-Up
Sampsonia Way’s new, comprehensive, literary calendar lists events of all types and genres, and according to its editor, Renée Alberts, “fosters inter-community involvement and expands Pittsburgh’s literary scene through cross-pollination.”
This Monday you can head over to Fleeting Pages in East Liberty (in the defunct Borders) and check out a night of readings from the performance troupe Literazzi, which supports literacy in Pittsburgh. The free event, which features excerpts from T.S. Eliot’s “Four Quartets,” will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
And on Wednesday, Michael Wurster leads a discussion of poet Frederick Seidel’s Poems 1959-2009 at Coffee Tree Roasters in Shadyside. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. and is sponsored by Pittsburgh Poetry Exchange.
